Update on Maiden Stone Opera

March 2014

Dear supporters,

We're absolutely bowled over by the support that you have shown to the Maiden Stone project with your incredibly kind donations. Joe is amazed by everyone's generosity and is grateful to you all for your support. We thought we'd let you know that Catriona has now completed the libretto and Joe is about halfway through the music. We've got five local schools on board (Oyne, Keig, Chapel of Garioch, Monymusk and Inverurie Market Place) to take the parts of demons and bannocks and to provide some of the soundscapes for the production; we start work on that part shortly after Easter.

We thought you might also like to know that this evening (Saturday) at 6pm (UK time) Joe and Catriona will be on shmufm's The Literature Show which you can catch in the Aberdeen area on 99.8FM or online at: 


If you can't make that - you can Listen Again for up to 7 days after this evening by going to:


Once again, thank you for your wonderful support. Those of you are expecting bannocks, we're working closely with some of Scotland's best Paul Hollywood lookalikes to come up with a cracking recipe and you should get them sometime in the summer
