music to weave to

DSC03369As the pressure built in the run up to my final weaving show last month my music tastes fluctuated from boogie woogie through blues to classical. However at points when my nerves were jangling and the to do list seemed endless, Mike Vass was just perfect. I fell in love with his beautiful ‘In the Wake of Neil Gunn’ music inspired by sailing in the Western Isles of Scotland. It was born both from the writings and voyaging Neil (a one time Customs Officer seeking his writer self) and Mike himself seeking creative reassurance after a long illness; it’s beautiful.
