A debut album from Scots singer/songwriter Kirsty Law.

The album was recorded at Heriot Toun Studio, Kirsty's home village Heriot, in the Moorfoot Hills.

She is joined by Rona Wilkie (fiddler) and Norwegian låtmandola player Marit Fält who add sympathetic accompaniment to her strong vocal line.

Kirsty Law (vocals), Rona Wilkie (fiddle), Marit Fält (låtmandola).

"Beautiful and feisty... it's a joy to hear a young singer and writer in Scots with such earthy and conversational character to her singing and songs... a young musician doing things her own way." Karine Polwart.

"With Shift, Kirsty Law has recorded an album which offers a rich and often heady brew of traditional and modern songs and sounds which retains a strong sense of its own identity within the traditions of music rooted in the Borders between southern Scotland and northern England. It draws the listener into a landscape of ruined castles and abbeys, of remote roads and pathways running along and across the Border, of forests, mountains and rivers which together comprise one of the last truly liminal spaces left in modern day, mainland Britain and offers a welcome and contemporary insight into the region’s cultural heritage." Helen Gregory Folk Radio UK.
