We are just back home from a short tour which was completely amazing! Every gig was sold out, attended by lovely, warm and supportive audiences, who bought the album and who were kind enough to give us standing ovations! We couldn’t be happier! Thank you so much to everyone who helped make the gigs happen and who came along to listen!
New tour dates will be shared soon (we’re coming to Dumfries, Edinburgh, Cardiff, Cambridge and London), but for now, here are some reviews of the live gigs:
It was joyous, thought-provoking, passionate, stirring, charming and beauteous; but it had edge too.
Colin Irwin, The Guardian
It was the work that they had created as an ensemble that made the pinnacles in an evening of highlights. Those included Gaelic song on either side of the interval, led by Mary Macmaster, Carthy’s Cleaning the Stones, a lament from the point of view of a solitary goldfish with a glorious, twisted melody, Kate Young’s Sea King, with its vocal score of many hues, and Rowan Rheinigans’ Eigg-inspired Soil and Soul. Where Karine Polwart, Carthy, Young and Rheinigans had combined their talents, on Over the Border and Road Less Travelled, we were hearing newly-minted political songwriting of the highest order.
Keith Bruce, Herald Scotland
Fine singers and musicians all, they had the packed theatre eating out of their hands and singing from their songsheet… While inspired by separation, the women conveyed the beauty and power of connection and left their audience with a warm and shared glow.
Anni Donaldson, Common Space
