A new solo folk performance about loss, language and cultural identity. Roots is an exploration of what it's like to lose home, and a questioning of whether it’s possible to re-find what is lost. Using a mixture of spoken word, Scottish traditional folk tunes and songs, archive material and her own original compositions, Elisabeth explores the theme of displacement through her personal experience as a Scottish teenager moving away from a close-knit village community and into an alien, sprawling city across the border. This is a story about leaving, arriving, self-identity, and above all, hope.
