Co-created by award-winning Scottish composer Finn Anderson (Islander) and award-winning director Tania Azevedo (&Juliet, But I’m A Cheerleader), A Mother’s Song: A New Folk Musical is a new transatlantic musical spanning centuries and continents.

From 17th century Stirling to 21st century New York City, themes of identity, motherhood, and choice collide in a bold and life-affirming story which follows three remarkable women at different moments in history, and traces the incredible journey of Scottish folk music across the Atlantic.

Sarah comes from a long line of ballad singers, but has severed ties with the folk traditions of her childhood. In modern-day New York City, Sarah’s rediscovery of these songs and the family stories within them, force her to go on an unexpected and life-changing journey across time.
