We've been hard at work preparing the various musical instrument parts for the Eigg show over the pandemic. It'll be nice to get out and finally play all this music for everyone. We've decided to supplement the Eigg score with some traditional Scottish Ceilidh music with dance sequences. They are so much fun to play and really make the show come alive!

We've decided to start using a new website address: eigg.show
The one we use today, "www.eiggthemusical.com", just seems too long and boring. We'll plan to redirect the old address for a while since lots of people use it as a link on their websites, but a few months ago the Web officially added several new internet TLD (top level domain) names and "show" is now an available as an extension.

At first, you're just putting chords and melodies on paper with words scattered around here and there. Then the story emerges and the songs start having relevance to the characters and the plot, that's when the lyrics start flowing and complete songs are placed in the libretto.
For me, if the songs come, so does the story. I wouldn't be good at writing songs for a predefined script. So here's the list of songs we have to use with Eigg, I started working on them in early 2017 as the Sisyphus production geared up and I put that work in the hands of the director. There are nearly 50 new songs here! I'm so thankful they came together like they did.
