SHETLAND SONGWRITING SHORT FILM

In October 2015 I visited Cape Breton Island to give an academic paper at the North Atlantic Fiddle Convention and perform with Blyde Lasses at Celtic Colours International Festival. Whilst in Canada I contributed to a couple of short films about Shetland bridal tunes and Shetland songwriting. Both these films are now online (see below).

The songwriting film explains the background to my 2015 composition, Hands Across the Hills, a song which will feature on my 2018 album. It was a pleasure to collaborate with Cape Breton University on these productions.
