29 BESSY THE BASS Round the World

, Start Time: 10:30, End Time: 11:40 Stromness Town Hall Church Road, Stromness KW16 3BA

Come and join Bessy Bass and share in her adventures as she embarks on a trip to visit musical friends from her coastal home in Lower Largo, Scotland to a variety of European destinations.

Along the way, Bessy makes new friends, learns something of the different cultures of each destination and discovers new music in a variety of styles. She also encounters several modes of transport including that of a magical car, named Henri.

The wonderfully engaging John Cavanagh reads directly from the book by May Halyburton with music composed and arranged by Lynda Cochrane.

Robyn Thomson’s original illustrations feature as a backdrop for this performance.
