Sister Cities: Tartan Ties
A musical collaboration between sister cities Dunedin and Edinburgh.

Hailing from New Zealand's indie music capital Dunedin, ROBERT SCOTT and JAY CLARKSON will join Edinburgh musicians CRAIG LITHGOW (Emelle), HAILEY BEAVIS and poet/raconteur KEVIN WILLIAMSON (Neu Reekie) to present a collaborative night of music and verse, celebrating and reconnecting the tartan ties  between these sister cities.

ROBERT SCOTT is a guitarist, singer and songwriter and member of indie New Zealand rock bands The Bats and The Clean.

He also performs solo, in several genres, including alternative rock, experimental instrumentals, and traditional folk music and is an accomplished artist - designing many album sleeves for the iconic Flying Nun recording label.

Joining Scott to represent NZ is composer, guitarist, vocalist, recording artist, poet and writer JAY CLARKSON. Clarkson was a founding member of '80s underground punk collective The Playthings and went on to perform with They Were Expendable, The Expendables, Breathing Cage and The Matches. She has released eight albums, published three pieces of literature, four pieces for Classical Guitar and has performed her poetry in the USA.

Representing Scotland is poet, author, publisher and activist KEVIN WILLIAMSON (from Neu Reekie)and talented musical master CRAIG LITHGOW and the unique voice that is HAILEY BEAVIS.

Four of the artists have recently performed together at the St Andrews Day celebrations in Dunedin and the Scottish leg of the tour will see them build on relationships and ideas forged during their time together in NZ.

Sister Cities: Tartan Ties is made possible with support from the British Council New Zealand, British Council Scotland, the Dunedin City Council and Creative Scotland.

Founded as a Scottish settlement in 1848 and named after Edinburgh's original Gaelic name Dùn Èideann, Dunedin city in New Zealand shares much of its architecture and history with its namesake and is regarded as NZ's indie music capital.
