The Springbank Voyage — Barry Nisbet

Thursday 18 August, 2022

In June 1908 the Clydebuilt sailing barque ‘Springbank’ sailed from Leith, loading a cargo of coal in Hamburg before setting out on a 14,000 mile voyage round Cape Horn to Santa Rosalía, Mexico.
Her crew included a woman from Liverpool, a captain from Newfoundland, and several Shetlanders and Orcadians.
Heartbreak, danger and wonder follow the ship’s traumatic voyage to her destination.
Shetland songwriter/fiddle player Barry Nisbet’s all-new musical telling of the story includes a talented cast of Scottish musicians, and incorporates sample archive recordings from Shetland storyteller Lawrence Tulloch (1947-2017).
