I'm really looking forward to beginning work on a brand new project spearheaded by Inge Thomson, also featuring Fraser Fifield, Steven Polwart and Graeme Smillie. It's a new body of work with music by Inge and lyrics from Lise Sinclair.
Da Fishing Hands is a collection of songs and instrumental pieces commissioned by Fair Isle Marine Environment and Tourism Initiative (FIMETI). The project highlights the influence of marine heritage on Fair Isle and raises awareness of the significance of the sea in the survival of this island community. You can read more about the project in Inge's interview with Folk Radio here.
