The sound of fighting will echo through Dundee Central Library on Saturday 17th February, as Tom Spiers tells the story of Scottish Soldiers over 600 years through Traditional Songs and Ballads.

Starting at 2pm, the Saturday Talk, hosted by the Friends of Wighton, will be an exciting and colourful look at how military adventures are celebrated and commemorated in music and verse.
