The Between Islands project was created by An Lanntair Arts Council in Stornoway on the Isle Of Lewis. Its aim is simply to encourage collaboration between the arts and heritage communities of Orkney, Shetland and the Hebrides, and this recording presents just some of the material that has been created to date through the musical element of the initiative.

The Musicians:
Maggie Adamson, Louise Bichan, Willie Campbell, Kris Drever, Julie Fowlis, Neil Johnstone., Jenny Napier Keldie, Kathleen Macinnes, Jane Hepburn Macmillan, Arthur Nicholson, Saltfishforty.

Between Islands Project had to cancel its planned scheduled performances due to the covid virus and lockdown.

"Originally meant to be released as a live Cd, this collection therefore now also contains studio recordings and some entirely new collaborations as the artists worked across projects during the lockdown period. It serves as a reminder of what can be achieved when we join forces, and the real joy is that there is no limit on what we can create in the future, as the islands continue to produce world-class artists year on year." Alex MacDonald, Between Islands Project Coordinator, An Lanntair.
