About Scottish Textualities

Scottish Textualities is a multi-media collaborative set celebrating Scots language, music, and culture with writer Anne M Scriven, musicians We Three Quinns, and photographer Sam Scriven. Staged at Gatehouse Coffee Roasters. Friday 1st October 7.30 - 9.30 pm. Coffee on sale. Tea by donation for a charity of Gatehouse staff choosing.

Anne is a published writer of narrative non-fiction, a former academic lecturing in Scottish Literature who was also an Honorary Fellow for the Centre for Scottish Cultural Studies, University of Strathclyde. She currently teaches English - and Scots - at secondary school level as well as producing and performing her own writing. See: www.annemscriven.com

We Three Quinns is a family concern. Wielding a range of instruments they have many years of playing and signing at sessions, events and various churches across Scotland. Catherine is the most far-flung - living in the wilds of Old Kilpatrick where she regularly signs in the hills - think Donovan meets The Sound of Music. Maureen is a Suzuki violin teacher who moonlights occasionally in the trad music scene. If you always wanted to learn violin check out her website at http://mquinnviolin.co.uk/

Patrick is still trying to learn to play an instrument properly but has been a busy musician because he has always had a car and access to a decent PA. He is also a regular presenter on Celtic Music Radio with his show 'It's a QuinnThing'.

Sam, a freelance videographer and award-winning photographer and an accomplished climber of Scottish peaks and boulders, is also a skateboard lovin' city dweller who delights in capturing the nuances of our amazing country.
