The folk thread

A discovery by happy chance! I only heard her pipes on Saturday night and never her voice until now.

Available on BBC Sounds (radio 4). Some great folk artists (Julie Fowlis and Duncan Chisholm) and writers and a journey across the Cuillin Ridge on the Isle of Skye.


Ah, Skye and the Black Cuillin! A very dangerous mountain - it looks benign, but walkers/climbers have to be rescued frequently.

Including four members of the police mountain rescue team who had to be rescued themselves in an overnight operation in terrible weather.

Actually the Black Cuillin is a range of mountains rather than a single mountain. There are 11 Munros along the ridge, including the notorious Inaccessible Pinnacle which Munro himself never climbed.

Apologies for thread diversion.



This may go beyond the folk boundary for some … never mind. I find the variety refreshing.
