Celtic Connections 2012 opening weekend is dedicated to Ishbel MacAskill.
One of Scotland's greatest ever Gaelic singers, Ishbel's sudden death in March last year left a huge hole in the music world and beyond. She was one of the most prolific, adored performers at Celtic Connections, having sung at every festival in the last 18 years - and more often than not stealing the show with her astonishing voice and charisma. The above is an excerpt from the beautiful film about her life created by Solus productions and screened on BBC Alba.
