Jackie Kay reads her poem 'Between the Dee and the Don'

This is the poem that Jackie Kay read after the announcement of her appointment as the third Makar or National Poet for Scotland. The variety of experience that it suggests makes her keenly attuned to the variety of voices in Scotland, and yet the poem also marks her as rooted in a landscape to which she returns again and again. 'Between the Dee and the Don' was published in Fiere (Picador, 2011).
