Encompassing a veritable treasure-trove of Gaelic song, Binneas nam Ban features an array of its foremost female exponents, celebrating women’s role in the tradition as both singers and bards. From Lewis and South Uist respectively, Margaret Stewart and Kathleen MacInnes are each renowned for their deeply authentic but highly individual style, while Sian – originally formed for the 2016 Blas Festival – brings together three outstanding younger singers: Skye’s Eilidh Cormack; Ellen MacDonald (Dàimh), whose family roots lie in North Uist and Eriskay, and another Lewis native, Ceitlin LR Smith. Performing songs by female bards, in both solo and ensemble arrangements, they’re accompanied by Ingrid Henderson, Jenn Butterworth, Shona Masson, and Eilidh MacFadyen.
