It’s little wonder that, after much of a Hebridean childhood spent listening to music and outlandish stories at ceilidhs in his grandparents’ sitting room, Colin MacIntyre of Mull Historical Society has himself now become an acclaimed award-winning musician and writer with his new Ivor Punch crime novel When the Needle Drops due to come out later this year. For his new MHS album In My Mind There’s a Room Colin has returned to record in that very room where his poet grandfather wrote, collaborating with some of his favourite authors including Val McDermid, Ian Rankin, Nick Hornby, Jackie Kay and Sebastian Barry, who have provided lyrics on rooms significant to them. In this event, Colin will perform tracks from the album plus his back catalogue and Val McDermid will join him to discuss the creative process behind his unique and exciting project.
