Bute Noir book 2019 meets Museum Artefact No.3

IMG_2133.000No. 3 in the series ‘Song of the Dead’ by Douglas Lindsay meets a 1930s song sheet from the archives of the Museum. What could be more appropriate for a book festival than Nat Bookbinder and his Chapters? They were the band in residence for the first season of Rothesay Pavilion, which opened in 1938. Douglas Lindsay’s excellent crime series features D.I. Ben Westphail, the first of which is ‘Song of the Dead’. As it is partly set in the wintry forests of Estonia, perhaps Cherry Blossom Lane isn’t the most appropriate song! Douglas will be taking part in the opening event of Bute Noir 2019 ‘Watching the Detectives’ at the Museum on Friday 2nd August.
