Myra Lynne Traugot

Myra Lynne Traugot presents her personal musical and historical voyage to 18th century Scotland, “Over the Sea to Skye with Flora MacDonald.” In 1746 MacDonald saved the Stuart crown prince by passing him off as her Irish spinning maid, preventing his capture by British forces. Why did she do it and what became of her later? Who were the players in the political and cultural drama? What conspiratorial secrets are hidden in plain sight in the rich musical heritage of the era? Give a listen as Myra musically informs this piece of Scottish history.
