A Tribute to Stanley Robertson

10am– 11.15am, Saturday 15 May

King’s College Centre, King’s College – FREE

In 2009, Scotland lost a cultural icon in the person of Stanley Robertson. Honoured and respected as a storyteller, ballad singer, writer and playwright, he synthesised history, experience and the culture of Scotland’s Travelling people, in spellbinding performances. In this tribute Sheena Blackhall and Ian Russell from the University’s Elphinstone Institute, with members of Stanley’s family, celebrate his remarkable achievements.
