This is the fifth in a series of webinars set up to address the hunger in the Scottish islands to hear from experts based in other islands worldwide, and to help inform the UHI Islands’ Strategy. Owe has written extensively on music, dance, ethnicity, age, heritage, and islands. He has also produced several hundred radio broadcasts for the Swedish Broadcasting Corporation, on music from around the world. He is an active musician, and plays in the bands Orientexpressen, Gunnfjauns kapell, and is the director of Gotlands Balalajkaorkester. In June 2013 he produced BelleSounds, the world’s largest concert. Next semester there will be further talks from island-based experts.
