Scottish Field’s weekly podcast is back for its 11th episode this week.
Joining us this week is Fiona Armstrong, or, to give her the formal title, Lady McGregor – and she’s also Dumfries’ Lord Lieutenant.
As well as giving columns about family life in the Scottish Fields each month, she is also the author of several books and has written for newspapers and made television programs on Scottish subjects including fishing and Scottish clans.
Our second guest was pianist and composer Professor Jeffrey Sharkey, who became Principal of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in September 2014, leading the National Conservatoire of Scotland for Dance, Drama, Music, Production and Screen.
Jeffrey served as director of Johns Hopkins University’s Peabody Institute from 2006–2014, where he helped revitalize the curriculum and launch several successful programs with the Colleges of Arts and Sciences, Engineering, Business, Education and the School of Medicine. helped.
In Baltimore, Jeffrey started free programs in music and dance to reach the wider community. These were associated with major arts organizations in the city and paved the way for talented youth to seek support during their studies. And this week, he joins us on the Scottish Fields podcast.
