By Breath and by String

The strong, shared heritage of music throughout the Highlands and Islands brings together communities and their stories from traditional folk music to modern song. Inspired by the landscape and communities of the region, as well as the rich tradition of Gaelic music, young musicians are making their own contribution to Highland culture. Discover the heart of the Highlands and Islands in our music.

This film was made by Northport as part of the Spirit of the Highlands and Islands project.
