SONGS OF SEPARATION

In June 2015, an intrepid group of female folk musicians from England and Scotland set off on a journey to the almost fairy-tale Isle of Eigg, Inner Hebrides, with an ambitious quest; to devise and record a collection of songs on the broad theme of 'separation'. They brought with them songs from their own traditions, along with new writing and settings of traditional poems, and there followed an incredible meeting of musical minds, and an enchanting album which they are excited to share.

With the likes of Eliza Carthy and Karine Polwart, the Lady Maisery trio, Hannah James, Hazel Askew, Rowan Rheingans, ground breaking Scottish musicians Mary Macmaster and Kate Young, international fiddler Hannah Read and a monster backline, Jenn Butterworth and Jen Hill, the live performance of this work promises to be unforgettable.
