Sinsheen are Christine Kydd and Barbara Dymock. Each a fine singer in her own right, 'Lift' is their first CD as a duo. Christine and Barbara have built a reputation among roots music lovers for originality, virtuosity and the livliest of live performances. Combining power, passion and pedigree, they contrast superb harmony vocals with light instrumental and percussive backing. The CD, which was produced by Michael Marra, features a great set of Scots songs and there's good, informative sleeve-notes to the album too! It includes a version of Mr Marra's Mother Glasgow soon to be heard in it's original context when the Plan B's new production of A Wee Home From Home starts it's Scottish tour. Also pleased to see that the CD cover photograph is by Andy Hall who with painter Francis Boag has a wonderful new book out, titled The Mearns Distilled it is well worth searching out.
