  • Christine Primrose has a voice that is crystal clear and pure. Even if you do not understand a word of Gaelic Christine's beautiful voice will captivate you. Her singing is of the best in nature with a lilting Lewis accent. She is accompanied with harp, smallpipes, fiddle and concertina.

    "A lovely voice that transcends any notion of language or place…one of the finest singers". Folk Roots.

    Gaelic song means many things to many people; at its best, a glorious incantation of life in the Highlands and Islands, at worst, an incomprehensible Celticised garble. Christine’s singing is of the best in nature, with a clear, pure tone and a lilting Lewis accent.
    Many of the songs on this album are older or traditional songs, but some are more recent. They are all gentle; songs of love, of loss, of longing for the land. Christine’s glorious voice is joined on some tracks by Alison Kinnaird on Scottish harp, Duncan MacGillivray on guitar, Alasdair White on whistle or fiddle, Ian MacInnes on Scottish smallpipes, and Simon Thoumire on concertina.
