Royal Conservatoire of Scotland concert to celebrate life of political giant Tam Dalyell

Published: 24/04/2018

The life of one of Scotland’s most recognisable contemporary political figures will be celebrated in a special musical performance at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland this week. A concert by acclaimed vocal ensemble RCS VOICES will be dedicated to the late MP Tam Dalyell.

The West Lothian MP, who died after a short illness in January 2017 at the age of 84, was one of the most well-known politicians of his era. MP for his home area for 43 years West Lothian from 1962 to 1983 and Linlithgow from 1983 to 2005, he retired from the House of Commons in 2005, having been Father of the House since 2001.

The Fridays at One concert on 27 April is expected to be attended by friends and family of the late MP and will feature Vaughan Williams Mass in G Minor and a selection from Songs of Farewell by Hubert Parry.

The concert runs from 1-2pm in the Stevenson Hall within the Royal Conservatoire in Renfrew Street. To book tickets, visit www.rcs.ac.uk/boxoffice
