Ishbel MacAskill

All at 891 Filmhouse are greatly saddened and shocked to hear of the death of the Gaelic singer Ishbel MacAskill, who has died at her home in Inverness. Sean and Louise filmed Ishbel at a gig in Harris last summer, and she graciously agreed to some of the music recorded that night being used in A Boat Retold, which premiereed in Stornoway only last weekend. We send our condolences and symapthies to her family and friends. She will be very much missed.
