Celtic Music In Memory of Marianna Lines

Today’s pro­gramme of Celtic music is in cel­e­bra­tion of the life and work of Mar­i­an­na Lines, who passed away ear­li­er this week.

Mar­i­an­na Lines worked with Pic­tish stones and ancient sites in Scot­land from the time she emi­grat­ed in 1977 from her native Atlanta, Geor­gia, USA. She made an inten­sive, vig­or­ous archaeo-artis­tic inves­ti­ga­tion into the field of Pic­tish Art, an art form indige­nous to Scot­land. With exten­sive field work, both tra­di­tion­al and exper­i­men­tal, Mar­i­an­na devel­oped an artis­tic and eco­log­i­cal process to cap­ture the images in nat­ur­al colour, often reveal­ing details which have dis­ap­peared from view through ero­sion. Founder of the Pic­tish Arts Soci­ety in Scot­land, she was also a print­mak­er, play­wright, writer and design­er.

Mar­i­an­na was a great lover of Celtic music, always inter­est­ed in hear­ing new artists and attend­ing con­certs all over Scot­land. Here is some music we hope she would enjoy — and that you will, too.

The image shows a pair of Pic­tish crea­tures from the head­er of Mar­i­an­na’s Stone­line Designs web site.
