Heather Leigh: Boo Boo Bird

Boo Boo Bird - Return to Y'Hup: The World of Ivor Cutler Live from Bob's Trainset on Vimeo.

"On January 29th 2020, as part of Celtic Connections, a large group of musicians led by Raymond Macdonald, Matt Brennan and Malcolm Benzie performed at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, an event called 'Return to Y'Hup: The World of Ivor Cutler'. The concert was a celebration of the work of Ivor Cutler, as well as an official launch of the album of the same name.
The plan was to make a short documentary about the evening overall but the current pandemic brought a halt to further filming. I aim to complete it as soon as possible but in the meantime, this is a short, single song film that hopefully gives a flavour of the event, an extraordinary performance by Heather Leigh."
