Inspired by her native Fair Isle’s intimate relationship with the sea, Da Fishing Hands is an intricately crafted, hauntingly evocative suite of new compositions by singer/accordionist Inge Thomson (Harem Scarem/Karine Polwart Trio). Originally conceived with her late cousin Lise Sinclair, it also features Admiral Fallow’s Sarah Hayes (vocals/flute), Fraser Fifield (sax/kaval/whistles), Steven Polwart (guitars) and Graeme Smillie (bass).
