McIntosh Ross are Ricky Ross and Lorraine McIntosh from Deacon Blue. They have recently released a compelling new album - their first as a duo. We had a couple of their songs specially arranged for orchestra by Paul Leonard-Morgan who wrote the score for A history of Scotland.

The BBC SSO

The BBC SSO performed some of the music from the TV series A history of Scotland and Neil Oliver will be a special guest at the concert. The score written by Paul Leonard-Morgan has been really well received and the orchestra playing selections of it live to footage taken from the series.
