The Banes o The Turas at Edinburgh FC / EFC
The Banes o the Turas is an entirely appropriate show to include in this year's Carrying Stream Festival. The show is based around poems written by the Italian poet Pino Mereu who wrote the poems having met Hamish Henderson in Rome. Pino came to Scotland for the launch of Douglas Eadies film about Hamish (shown on BBC Scotland) where he then met amongst many others Margaret Bennett, Dolina MacLennan and Sheila Stewart. Pino returned to Italy inspired and penned a series of poems in tribute to Hamish, Gramsci and all those he met and have influenced him. The book is to be published by Tippermuir Books and is a translation into Scots from the original Italian of Pinos book, Turas Viaggio.

The book will have been launched in Blairgowrie on Friday 11 November 2022 with a small gathering of poets and musicians. Its quite a special moment to celebrate such a thing in the birthplace of Hamish on the date of his birth, but then to bring the book and celebrate it more widely in Edinburgh and as part of the Carrying Stream is most certainly the icing on the cake!

The show is a blend of readings from Pino's book, The Banes o the Turas, and music which fits the poetry. Poet Jim C MacKintosh will be reading and joined by Pipe Major Callum Douglas (a great piper!) and the wonderful singer Aileen Ogilvie who will perform music referenced in the poems and relevant to the book.

They will also be joined by Pino himself who is coming to Scotland from Rome for the occasion who may read one or two of the original poems and there will be some special guests saying a few words and contributing to what will be a memorable occasion.

With so many relevant links through Pinos poetry, it's easy to see quite clearly that this show is a must to include in this year's Carrying Stream Festival .
