All Day

Acclaimed radio broadcaster Matthew Bannister came to Skye for the SEALL Festival of Small Halls in November 2019 to record three episodes for his award winning podcast Folk on Foot.
The firast episode comes out on Friday and features the Edinburgh-born harpist, fiddle player and singer Rachel Newton. Rachel was Radio 2’s Musician of the Year in 2017. She sings in both English and Gaelic and is a member of The Shee, @The Furrow Collective andThe Lost Words – Spell Songs.
‘We walked with her on the Isle of Skye in November 2019 where she was taking part in the wonderful Seall Festival of Small Halls, in which top Scottish musicians come together to tour the community halls of the island. So, as well as our walk by the Fairy Pools, where Rachel plays and sings with the water bubbling behind her, you’ll hear extracts from packed gigs in the village hall at Glendale and the Old Inn at Carbost. And there’s even a cameo appearance by our old friend the fiddle player and composer Duncan Chisholm.’
