HOLLY MACVE – Song For Ewe

“SONG FOR EWE” is the feature where artists & music people beloved by VELVET SHEEP choose an obscure song they’ve been listening to that day. Today’s guest has a voice that’ll make you stop dead in your dust tracks.

KIRA SKOV – Song For Ewe

“SONG FOR EWE” is the feature where artists & music people beloved by VELVET SHEEP choose an obscure song they’ve been listening to that day.

CEITIDH MAC – Song For Ewe

“SONG FOR EWE” is the feature where artists & music people beloved by VELVET SHEEP choose an obscure song they’ve been listening to that day. Today it’s an artist who’s gonna do for the cello what Mary Lattimore has for the harp, i.e. make it achingly cool. Ceitidh is pronounced Katie, and Mac short for MacLeod, and soon enough it’s going to be shorthand for soaring cello virtuosity. Boho like Ani DiFranco,...
