Christine Primrose - Aite Mo Ghaoil

Select from currently available formats:

Hailed by both Gaels and non-Gaels, the debut album from Christine Primrose was the forerunner of a new generation of recordings by young Gaelic singers. From the Isle of Lewis, Christine has won many prizes at the Mod and the Pan Celtic Festival. She has become a highly regarded and sought after tutor in Gaelic song, and has travelled the world singing and teaching.

"A young singer who sings in Gaelic & does it immaculately - tender & vulnerable"

"Many of the songs will already be familiar to Gaels, but the crystal purity of Christine's voice ensures that each retain a freshness after innumerable hearings"
