Crossing Points: Kathleen MacInnes and
Crossing Points brings together two of Scotland’s leading traditional singers to explore common ground and find a meeting place between the Scots and Gaelic traditions. This project sees them develop a set of new material which blends songs from both traditions in new and inventive ways.
“It was those two voices working in tandem … that served notice that they already have something special going on… a quality of vocal sound that made it exciting just to be in the same room.” Rob Adams, The Herald.
“inspired collaboration” **** Jim Gilchrist, The Scotsman.
