Talliston is an ex-council house which has been transformed into a dream-world home.

Harpist Julia said it was an honour to perform at Talliston.

She added: "Long Game is an album that brings together some of my musical experiences, such as my time as a folk pop harpist and as the singer of a melodic metal band while living in Japan.

"Lyrically, a main theme is 'transitions', whether that’s moving to a new home, a new country, or a new stage of life.

"'Persistence in difficult times' is also a theme which might be relatable to lots of us right now."
