||A quote from John McGrath:
When I was desperately searching for a Gaelic singer for a 7:84 Highland show, my advisers
were unanimous: "the girl from Barra that was with Fir a Chlis." And so, after a
series of phone calls to a singer reluctant to act, especially in English, I set off for
Tobermory, and there met the girl working in the Mishnish Hotel, - Catherine-Ann MacPhee.
She is a singer with a huge and wonderful repertoire, a voice that speaks
straight to the heart, conveying a depth of experience way beyond her years, and quite a
good actress, even in English.....
She has worked with 7:84 Scotland since that meeting in 1981,
travelling all over Scotland with us, appearing on television in "There is a Happy Land," playing in Moscow. Leningrad, Tbilisi,
Toronto, Cape Breton, and Berlin as well. Everywhere, people wanted her record. We are
proud to get together with Greentrax to say: Here it is. Enjoy it.
