The Maryhill Songbook

Nineteenth-century poems are brought vividly to life with the launch of The Maryhill Songbook. Join us as Maryhill Heritage Choir tell Maryhill’s story, inspired by historic poems from our archive, and set to their new melodies.

Maryhill Heritage Choir have composed new melodies to turn 19th-century poetry from our archive into songs which tell stories of Maryhill and its community between 1822 and 1905. Hear the poems come to life in our celebration of local arts, culture and heritage at Maryhill Burgh Halls.

Join us for performances, arts workshops and more!

1.30pm - 3.30pm on Saturday, 9th December 2017.

Free and all welcome!

The Maryhill songs have also been published as a Songbook, which will be available to purchase on the day.

This exciting project, which reveals more of Maryhill’s little-known history, was grant aided by Creative Scotland.
