Curious Shoes

I composed the music for the show and was a performer and the musical director for two tours around Scotland, highlands, islands and the central belt.

Curious Shoes was created by the wonderful Magdalena Schamberger and came out of her experience running Hearts and Minds. Curious Shoes is a collaborative performance made for people living with dementia, their loved ones and those who care for them.

You can read a lot more about the project on the detailed case study on her website here:

...and the gorgeous quality of Nicolette Macleod’s music, which ranges from quiet accompaniment to exquisite songs, both new and familiar.
Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman, reviewing Curious Shoes
Macleod in particular contributed some genuinely touching songs, both as singer and musician—some new, others familiar and echoed among the audience.
