"I first met Julia in the Edinburgh session scene just as the Nineties were kicking off. She seemed like such a wholesome, disciplined character, with her 'peaches and cream' complexion, flowing skirts and poised posture. But, as we all know looks can be deceiving! We embarked on a great few years of tunes and fun together, and there's a fantastic sense of that on this album. She's been under the radar for far too long. It's a real pleasure to listen to her play again." Eilidh Shaw 2019.
