As Far North as Anything Grows was produced during my artist in residence at National Library of Scotland 2020-21. During the residency I ran creative music and writing workshops with two groups of 15 participants. This piece is what resulted from that collaboration. The accompanying piece 'Pushing Reaching Falling Replacing' is also available for download.

I've made this piece free to download, however if you'd like to pay for the track all profits will go to highland rewilding charity Trees For Life.


Thanks for taking the time to read/listen.
