Royal Scotland National Orchestra - Fair Isle, Shetland - Outer Isles Project

Fair Isle's Lise Sinclair - Neil Thomson play with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra's Jane Reid - Rosina Alter -Duncan Swindells - Rachel Bull in the Fair Isle Hall last night. The ensemble took part in a live web cast part of the RSNO's The Outer Isle Project broadcasting live from Fair Isle, Skerries, Unst, Foula & Lerwick. And it worked!

Live from Skerries to Fair Isle.

Fair Isle Is heard in Unst, Skerries & Foula as seen on the screen.

And it was brilliant! Have a listen.
