Melodies of St. Kilda (2022)

Traditional Scottish Melodies as remembered by Trevor Morrison

Trevor Morrison, a frail resident of a care home in Edinburgh, Scotland, sits down at the out-of-tune piano in the dining room and begins playing a few haunting songs that no one's ever heard before.  Turns out he'd learned them 60 years earlier from his piano teacher who had once lived on St. Kilda.  He asks Stuart McKenzie, a local IT consultant who is part of a volunteer organization that helps elderly citizens navigate their way through a computer, "Can these things record music?"  Thus begins an amazing series of events that have led from Trevor's piano to Carol's dulcimer.  All the details of this incredible "six-degrees-of-separation" tale are laid out in this newest book.
