Music video: Farewell to Stromness

Another recent music video, “Farewell to Stromness” by Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, is part of the “Yellow Cake Revue” – a set of songs plus two piano interludes that Davies wrote to protest a proposed uranium mine on the Orkney islands in 1980.

I, too, live on an island; Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. I thought what better to pair this song with than footage I’ve filmed on the beautiful Vancouver Island shorelines.

I’ve recorded a Harp Tuesday episode talking about how to play Farewell to Stromness on the harp.
