Voices Over the Water explores the social and cultural history of the Scottish diaspora.

Voices Over the Water searches for what lies behind these celebrations and pageantry, uncovering tragedies, often unspoken and perhaps misunderstood.

Puirt-á-Beul is Gaelic for mouth music. The most important part of these songs is the rhythm. The rhythm of the words is meant to replicate the rhythm of dance tunes.
