Possible Scotlands with Momus

  • The Fruitmarket Gallery 45 Market Street Edinburgh EH1 1DF (map)

Momus, whose Book of Scotlands will be published for the first time by Luath Press this September, presents an evening of songs and stories about 'possible Scotlands' - delirious and speculative versions of the future of a nation which requires more than ever its writers and artists to dream it into existence.

The Book of Scotlands outlines 156 possible Scotlands which currently do not exist anywhere but maybe, someday, could. At a moment when, after centuries of desire and unrest, independence seems to be a real possibility for Scotland, Scottish-born, Berlin-based musician/author/journalist Momus offers a delirium of visions, practical and absurd. Momus, who describes himself as a polymath-dabbler, suggests that the real Scotland is free to embrace or reject this parallel world.

Momus, alias Nick Currie, is a Scottish songwriter, author, blogger and former journalist currently based in Berlin.

Tickets are £5 and are available from the Fruitmarket Gallery Eventbrite page.
