Flora MacNeil is one of the important sources of Scots Gaelic song. A native of the Island of Barra, Flora's characteristic and personal style adds to rather than distorts the essential virtues of her ancient Hebridean heritage. In short she is one of the great singers of the world.

Traditional album of the year 1978 (Folk News).

"Here is some of the finest singing I have ever heard on record ... The real pity is that so few of us understand the language." (MANCHESTER FOLK GUIDE)
