about

The three girls in this band are all prize winning musicians and listeners to this CD will very soon know why that's the case from the very fine Shetland style fiddle playing apparent even from track 1. Along with the bands' guitarist Andrew Tulloch, all these musicians can also turn out extremely good self-penned tunes. I particularly liked Jenna Reid's "Gordon the Golfer" and Gemma Wilson's "Beth's Tune" while Andrew wrote the album's title track "A Thousand Miles Away". Filska are another excellent example of the high standard of musicianship apparent in Scotland's young musicians at this time. A band who can proudly and ably represent our musical culture on the world stage.
