Christine has been at the heart of some of my favourite folky albums over the past twenty years or so

I think her voice is superb… a great interpreter of song

Brian McNeill

Christine’s ground-breaking recordings of Scots songs and harmony singing, whether in duos, trios or as a solo artist, stand out as favourites in my collection. As a performer, her warm inviting vocals and passion for the material draw even the uninitiated into discovering the riches of Scots song
