Adelaide’s, 209 Bath Street, Glasgow G2 4HZ
Eddie McGuire’s composition Unity Suite is his cultural contribution to the Better Together campaign. It will have its first performance in Adelaides in Glasgow on Friday 5 September, performed by the Dalriada Trio. This concert will be a morale-boosting event for the No campaign and will also feature the premiere of a new song against separatism. The event will be available later on YouTube.
Quoted in The Guardian on 5 August, Eddie said that he believes there are practical reasons why artists on the No side are less visible. “Those in full-time jobs with a major orchestra, or Scottish Opera, don't have the ability to speak out [their contracts forbid it] but in my experience they are solidly opposed...Those who are organised in professional bodies and trade unions don't want to be weakened by separation.”
