Edinburgh welcomes Palestine Youth Orchestra

Elsewhere on this website (link) there’s information about concerts by the Palestine Youth Orchestra in Perth and Glasgow. Yesterday they made a visit to Edinburgh first for a wonderful meal provided by volunteers (including EA4P members) in Stockbridge and then a photo-call at the Scottish Parliament.  They were met by Andy Wightman MSP, a piper, and the Protest in Harmony ban of singers who all did their stuff magnificently.  The Palestinian musicians responded with applause, cheers and smiles, and wanted the words of the ‘Boycott’ song sung by Protest in Harmony.  There was much taking of photographs.  Then they went up the Royal Mile with piper and Palestine flags to Johnstone Terrace to get on their bus back to Glasgow.  IMG_1832
