Discovery: Violet Bell

Fisherman’s Daughter reintroduces the old Celtic myth about the selkie back into the public consciousness, in the form of duo Violet Bell’s beautiful new folk song.

By Jane Howkins

It’s a folk song in the more traditional style, with violins and banjos being the order of the day here. The vocals suit the genre of music well, truly soaring in parts. The rhythm develops into a proper stomp over the course of the song, making you want to get up and dance straight away! Those into their folk music will love this!
