The Island Tapes

The Island Tapes is a visual and aural treat, a highly original blend of original live music with five silent films recording life on St. Kilda, Skye, Harris, Orkney and Shetland in the 1920s and 30s. This fascinating footage presents vintage snapshots of past times and forgotten events in a world apart from todayís relentlessly fastpaced society. Adding an evocative underscore, Scotlandís foremost classical guitarist Allan Neave, Berlin-based fingerstyle virtuoso Ian Melrose and the superb Gaelic songstress Alyth McCormack join David Allison in this captivating and unforgettable multi-media experience.
