“…Da Fishing Hands constitutes its own marvellously rich and rewarding microcosm, of an island’s and its islanders’ interwoven stories; of the vision, sophistication, ambition and musicianship currently at work among Scotland’s folk community; of brand-new folk music that’s as completely rooted in its social and environmental context as the most ancient traditional ballad. And lastly, of the alchemical art that can transform the seemingly tiniest particular into the grandly universal.”
