Album Notes
Kathie Touin is a singer-songwriter, originally from California, now living in Orkney off the north-east coast of Scotland. Her previous releases include two albums of her own songs, Butterfly Bones and Dark Moons & Nightingales, and an album of piano pieces, Soliloquy Deluxe. The new song, The Selkie Of Skaill Bay, is inspired by the folklore of Orkney. A selkie is a seal which can shed its skin and come ashore in human form to dance on the beach. If the skin is lost or stolen, the selkie can not resume its seal shape and is trapped on land. The Selkie Of Skaill Bay tells the story of one such female selkie from the heroine's point of view.

The Selkie of Skaill Bay
This is a lovely song so beautifully sang and performed, the words tell the tale so that it becomes almost visible in your imagination.
