Free but ticketed
Join internationally-renowned mezzo-soprano Andrea Baker for excerpts of her award-winning show Sing Sistah Sing! - a joyful, soulful celebration of the African American female voice. This is a one-off chance to catch a mini performance from Andrea, who will sing and share stories with a link to Scottish, Black and LGBT history.
This will be followed by a Q&A and an optional opportunity for audience members to share their stories and explore the idea of telling their own original stories through music and spoken word.
Andrea Baker is one of the artists featured in OMOS - an exhibition at the Stirling Castle of a new moving image work that pays homage to untold Scottish Black History and celebrates Black excellence and performance in Scotland.
