Neil Adam / Judy Turner

Sing me a Song! - A celebration of the wit and wisdom of Robert Louis Stevenson in words and music

He wrote much more than Treasure Island and Kidnapped! This is a delightful musical show arranged, performed and produced by acclaimed Australian artists Neil Adam and Judy Turner. Robert Louis Stevenson’s poetry as song, illustrated by family photos from Scotland, the USA and the Pacific will take you on  a journey into the all too short life of one of Scotland’s most beloved authors

Judy Turner (fiddle, viola, narration) and Neil Adam (guitar/vocals) are stalwarts of the Australian and UK folk scenes, showcasing Scottish and Australian traditional as well as their own material. Acclaimed for their fine musicality and wonderful rapport with audiences, their show on the life of Robert Louis Stevenson is an homage to a great writer by two great musicians.

"Neil and Judy's Show on R.L. Stevenson was interesting, heart-warming, and highly professional. Their performances at the Scottish Storytelling Centre in Edinburgh were a great evening's entertainment, accomplished musicianship coupled with a genuine affection for the man and his writing. The musical settings to Stevenson's lyrics are beautiful. We received nothing but great feedback from our own audiences and from their outreach tour through the libraries in the west of Scotland. The acoustic nature of the event seemed ideally suited to the venues, and their enthusiasm was infectious. It was great having them at the festival. "
