Following her critically acclaimed performance at the Edinburgh International Fringe Festival as part of the Made In Scotland showcase, Sophie Rocks is now touring her solo harp show, Notes from Shetland to Shanghai, a fusion of solo harp music, poetry and spoken word.

Drawing from personal accounts, both of those who leave and those who stay, this show will take you on a journey, exploring the emotional side of immigration –  fear, sorrow, heartbreak, connection, freedom and, most importantly, hope. Sophie will be drawing influences from her traditional Shetland roots and cutting-edge contemporary music to explore the impact of migration on people from countries such as Scotland, Canada, Nigeria, Israel, Russia and of course, China.
