This wee film charts the first field-trip of The Psalmboat Project to Lochs on the Isle of Lewis in November 2014. We met, interviewed, learned from and laughed with folk whose recollection of traditional sailing boats carrying psalmsingers to worship remains a cherished memory. For lead artist déirdre ní mhathúna and indeed all the artists, these stories have brought a 'Treasure/Ulaidh' of inspiration and traditional Gaelic knowledge.
Our multi-disciplinary team is brought out a poetry publication in late summer 2015 and filmed a re-enactment of sailing the loch in traditional community sailing boats, the Ness Skiffs/Sgoth(an) Niseach.
