The Headless Ghost

I got a call from the local paper today. They had picked up on my forthcoming concert in the cathedral ruins on Thursday 1st August, where the title of the event is “Colainn gun Cheann – Ranald and the Ghost”, and the programme will include spooky and supernatural tales of the headless body and other otherworldly beings.

The journalist wanted to know, would there be any unusual photo-opportunities? I explained that it would be myself, wearing a suit, playing the harp in the cathedral ruins, just like normal, and they seemed disappointed. But this got me thinking, what were they expecting? What kind of manifestation might be appropriate without being utterly tacky? Suggestions please.

At the Cathedral yesterday

Here’s a photo taken by an attendee at yesterday’s cathedral concert. People were, as usual, most intrigued by the bowed lyre. We had a full house, and the sun was shining. People came to the event from as far away as the west coast, and there was even a visitor from Bergen who appreciated the Norwegian connections in the programme!
