FHR Edinburgh Event – Fourth Reveal

TEASER.jpg

We are proud to announce also joining us for the Folk Horror Revival: The Unseelie Court event at Edinburgh are –

Cat Irving and Daniel Pietersen on Beyond Burke and Hare. Cat Irving, Human Remains Conservator for Surgeons’ Hall Museums, and Daniel Pietersen, horror author, investigate the history behind the life and death of Edinburgh’s most notorious murderers, Burke & Hare, and their connection to one of its most enigmatic mysteries, the Fairy Coffins of Arthur’s Seat. They will speak at the day event.

Appearing on the evening is a very special performance by Philly based band Ex Reverie in association with the visionary artist Julia Jeffrey. Fronted by singer Gillian Chadwick, the set relates to the mysterious case of the infamous Scottish Witch Isobel Gowdie, for which Julia has produced a series of stunning illustrations.
