What could be better than a song and story? In the first of our films Tom Muir tells the tale of The Storm Witch, who it is said sold fair winds to sailors.  

Our second piece is an important part of the Between Islands project history, as it is one of the first songs written collectively by the original music project participants – Willie Campbell, Kris Drever and Arthur Nicolson. For our online series of special performances this version features Willie along with fellow Western Isles musicians Neil Johnstone and Jane Macmillan.
