Christine's singing has been at the heart of some of my all-time favourite folk albums. She's a commanding soloist, a brilliant harmony arranger, and an inspirational teacher." Karine Polwart.

"I think her voice is superb… a great interpreter of song." Brian McNeill.

"Christine’s ground-breaking recordings of Scots songs and harmony singing, whether in duos, trios or as a solo artist, stand out as favourites in my collection. As a performer, her warm inviting vocals and passion for the material draw even the uninitiated into discovering the riches of Scots song." Fiona Ritchie, Producer/host, NPR's The Thistle and Shamrock.
