Ear to the Ground Scotland

Lisa Robertson: “Telling It Like It Is” with Music and Nature

April 21, 2021

In this episode, we had the pleasure of chatting to composer and violinist Lisa Robertson. 

Lisa is from the West Highlands of Scotland and is particularly interested in combining sounds from nature and folk music, and examining relationships between people and the land, often highlighting environmental concerns.

Recently, she was featured in BBC Music Magazine's 'Rising Stars' column. Her music has been performed by the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, EXAUDI, Red Note Ensemble, Hebrides Ensemble, Lucy Schaufer, and Heather Roche, among others.
