"Has deserved her success because of her clear and thoughtful vocals, and she sticks to much the same formula on this new set... The songs are from the Hebrides, Perthshire, or North Uist, where she grew up, and range from gentle and exquisite ballads such as A Chatrion' Og to slinky, rhythmic songs traditionally sung by tweed workers... Impressive and varied." (The Guardian)
