Freedom To Roam: The Rhythms of Migration is flautist Eliza Marshall’s humanitarian and environmental project, first conceived during a visit to the Inner Hebrides in 2018. The result is a beautifully crafted journey in music and film, exploring themes such as climate change, conflict, restriction and empathy.
Leader of the Freedom To Roam project, flautist Eliza Marshall, is joined by album co-writers Catrin Finch, Jackie Shave and Dónal Rogers plus special guests including Kuljit Bhamra MBE and Robert Irvine.
With a backdrop of a stunning bespoke video by acclaimed video designer Amelia Kosminsky, they will play the entire Freedom To Roam album after a screening of the accompanying documentary by multi-award-winning director Nicholas Jones (A Greenlander, You Are Here). The project was inspired by a desire for universal compassion, the realisation that we are nature and how all of our lives are deeply interconnected.
