The Stroma Sessions
Finalist for the BBC Audio Drama Awards 2017 for Best Script (Tinniswood Award) and Best Supporting Actress (Valene Kane)
‘The Blackletter Quartet’, a new music ensemble, had an idea: to write and record an album on Stroma, an abandoned island off the north coast of Scotland.
Five years after the Quartet’s disappearance, ‘The Stroma Sessions’ – a series of audio files charting the musicians time on the island and the music they created there – were discovered on the internet.
Stroma was abandoned in the early 1960s: its few remaining buildings stand dilapidated, battered by the North Sea. The four musicians sought inspiration in the ruined houses and unforgiving weather. They wanted to make music in a ghost town. The evidence suggests they found what they were looking for.
