Common Ground: Songs of a Changing Landscape

Nature Unwrapped

‘A poignant, unflinching and beautiful show.’ ★★★★★ The Telegraph  

‘A natural storyteller’ ★★★★ The Guardian


The ancient metamorphic rock of Lewis laments the hubris of global human politics. A tree pleads with a woodcutter’s axe. And a tiny scrap of Scottish moorland remembers its own past and warns that ‘we are all bog born’.

Award-winning Scottish folk singer, theatre maker and writer, Karine Polwart, speaks to the urgency of environmental crisis and the contested use of land via song, spoken word, story and myth in an intimate solo performance.


BBC Radio 2 Folk Singer Of The Year 2018, Karine Polwart, is a multi-award-winning Scottish songwriter and musician, as well as theatre-maker, storyteller, spoken-word performer and published essayist. Her songs combine folk influences and myth with themes as diverse as Donald Trump’s corporate megalomania, Charles Darwin’s family life and the complexities of modern parenthood. She sings traditional songs too and writes to commission for theatre, animation and thematic collaborative projects. Karine is seven-times winner at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, including three times for Best Original Song.
