Linda Marshall Griffiths’ magical story of love and loss recorded on location at the Edinburgh Festival inspired by the Scottish myth ‘Tamlin and the Fairy Queen.’
The festival was always a place she liked to wonder. She could be there in full view and no-one thought she was more than a performer. She could catch people out, half-drunk some of them would do anything, go anywhere. And she took them. She used it as a time to cross over, let them have some of the songs she kept, some of the stories she knew. But this man, this one she wanted to keep.
