Matilda is about to embark on a journey – a great walk, an
In Autumn 2019, she will walk the length of Scotland, solo, self sufficient, carrying everything she needs on her back, without any ‘expedition’ support. She will walk over mountains, through valleys, towns and one city – The city of Glasgow. She will be walking through some of the most beautiful and desolate wilderness of Scotland. It will be Matilda’s own route – linking old paths to make a new path.
During her walk Matilda will be composing and performing music. The music she imagines will emerge and develop through the people she meets, the landscapes she passes in and through, the thoughts that will run through her head – her mind turning over like her feet stepping one foot in front of the other. She has selected six venues and communities along her path where these performances will take place alongside community events. Members of Matilda’s Ensemble will perform with her in each venue after walking together for a short part of the journey.
Matilda will be joined by her faithful companion, Jasper, throughout this walk. You can read more about Jasper’s journey here.
Throughout the journey, Matilda will be sharing regular updates via her Alongside Autumn Blog.
