A brand-new creation by Inge Thomson and Jenny Sturgeon, Northern Flyway explores the ecology, folklore, symbolism and mythology of birds and birdsong. Also featuring singer/multi-instrumentalist Sarah Hayes (Admiral Fallow) and the phenomenal vocal sculptor Jason Singh, it draws on such sources as the extensive field recordings of musician/composer and birdsong expert Magnus Robb, Sturgeon’s background as a biologist and Thomson’s home turf of Fair Isle, combining vocal and instrumental composition, sonic experimentation and lush, evocative visuals.
