The Boy and the Bunnet
The Boy and the Bunnet is a brilliant way to introduce children (and adults) to the Scots language and Scots traditional instruments.
In the story, each of the characters is represented by a different musical instrument. It also introduces different styles of Scots traditional music, for example, a jig, a march and a reel. The Boy and the Bunnet is performed in a live show, with a narrator guiding the audience through the story. A book and CD have been published, and educational material is available for teachers to introduce the story in schools.
The story has been written by James Robertson and the music composed by James Ross. It’s hoped that The Boy and the Bunnet will become a familiar story to children for many years to come, be it enjoyed in the theatre, the classroom or at home.
