Karine Polwart, the Soundhouse Choir & Oi Musica perform 'Enough is Enough' under Gaia
Karine Polwart, the Soundhouse Choir & Oi Musica perform 'Enough is Enough' under Gaia Saturday, 06 November 2021 12:30 PM

The only chance to see this epic musical collaboration performed live in Edinburgh! Originally composed for performance during COP26, this moving climate song was released as a music video during lockdown in November 2020, the week that COP26 should have been in progress, and it quickly went viral. Much awaited by the 100 performers involved, this will be an unmissable moment on a Global Day of Climate Action.

Karine Polwart is a multi-award winning Scottish musician and theatre maker, much respected for songwriting that draws on themes of place, myth and nature. She is 7-times winner at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, including 3 times for Best Original Song. The Soundhouse Choir, formed in partnership with the Soundhouse Organisation in 2016, is a fun & friendly all-welcome community choir that has performed in many of Eidnburgh's most prestigious venues  - the Usher Hall, Queens Hall, Greyfriarrs Kirk and the Scottish Parliament. Oi Musica is an artist-led social enterprise based in Portobello that uses the music of street bands to bring people and communities together - think brass sections, massed drummers and celebration!

Together they will perform their powerful piece 'Enough is Enough' - long awaited after 18+ months of postponed performances, and in the choir's case operating entirely online. During this time, the artists involved have created an open invite for anyone & everyone to share clips of music & creativity online, designed to build public pressure on world leaders at the COP26 summit. Add your voice to this exciting wave of creativity - all welcome! www.letitgrow.scot
