Alchemy of Soil by Natalie Taylor Natalie has created a powerful exhibition in response to the theme of the first John Muir Artist in Residence – Fertile Ground: Soil supported by East Lothian Arts Service. The exhibition comprises works dealing with the ground we walk on and its fertility. The exhibition includes; drawings, paintings, sculpture, tapestry and an installation exploring the theme of our fertile soils. It is inspired by her research within the community during her John Muir Residency, which she undertook over two weeks in April, and the subsequent reading she undertook in the light of the UN International Year of Soil, 2015.
CoastWord is a celebration of written, spoken word and song-writing to bring Dunbar, East Lothian and all our many visitors together in story, song and poetry.

"Starting in a kind of 'meet-the-Proclaimers' mode Graham gives us “Just One More Drink”, an honest and ultimately sad song, “Just one more drink and I’ll think that you love me” he sings with a heavy amount of added pathos. “Lady Of The Road” tracks the life of a vagrant and the good advice she is able to give but unable to follow herself. Graham ends a popular set (he has fans!) with “You're The Fool”, described as “boy who loves girl who loves boy who loves other girl....and so on”. Confused and unrequited love is the perfect topic for any songwriter to get his teeth into and Graham does so with vigour"
