Sally Garden's Scots translations of Haugtussa given a warm welcome at their launch in Aberdeen.

There were smiles all round at the Cowdray Hall, Aberdeen on 23rd September when Sally Garden and Donald Hawksworth gave song-cycle Haugtussa as part of their Grieg recital for the Aberdeen Art Gallery Lunchbreak Concerts series. Introducing her Scots translations in written form, Sally Garden gave the cycle in its original Norwegian. A delighted audience followed every turn of the love story through her Doric dialect versions.
