Butterfly Rammy: Bide


Listen to Butterfly Rammy now on CommonSpace

‘BIDE’ was the theme of the 18 August Butterfly Rammy show at the Edinburgh Fringe.

Where people choose to make our home can say a lot about who they are and what they believe in. Guests discussed the role of identity and place in the referendum campaign and what part it should play within politics.

Taking part in the show was MP for Glasgow North-East Anne McLaughlin, journalist and campaigner Lesley Riddoch, cultural activist Graham Campbell and Common Weal’s own Katie Gallogly-Swan.

Miss Irenie Rose provided music using no instrumentation other than a loop pedal and her own voice, and Katie read from ‘Bide: A Triptych’, her contribution to the Butterfly Rammy book.

Butterfly Rammy will run until 30 August at the Stand in the Square.

Each show is based around one Scots word that represents ‘Butterfly Rammy’–the multiple and diverse thinking and activism that developed through the independence movement.
