Hebridean Women will feature traditional Gaelic singers from throughout the Islands of the Hebrides. The project will focus specifically on songs for and about women, and featuring the very best female vocalists from the Hebrides. The project has been designed to encourage collaboration, promote the music and song from the area, but also, and importantly, to provide a “master and apprentice” style of working, with singers chosen from all generations. This variation will feature Julie Fowlis, Kathleen Macinnes, Cathie Ann Macphee, Isobel Ann Martin and Mary Smith. It will be the launch day concert for HebCelt 2016.
