Butterfly Rammy: Dwam


Listen to the latest instalment from Common Weal’s Edinburgh Fringe show

COMMON WEAL kicked off its Edinburgh Fringe Butterfly Rammy show on 7 August with ‘Dwam’, which explored whether Scotland and the UK have been in a political dwam and if so, whether recent events have been sufficient to rouse them from it.

The guests were Harry Giles, Karen Campbell and Angus Farquhar with music from Alasdair Roberts. Karen also did a reading of the short story that she wrote for the Dwam chapter of the Butterfly Rammy book.

But unfortunately the first of Alasdair’s songs was so exclusive that we’ve had to edit it out of the recording – sorry folks!

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.
