Singer/ songwriter Karine Polwart recently headed the Guardian's Best World and Folk Albums of 2012 with her new album. A number of years ago Karine worked for Scottish Women's Aid and at one point she worked with us at the Edinburgh Youth Gaitherin. Her songwriting is often influenced by her previous work with Scottish Women's Aid. This is a great song about overcoming adversities.
Karine performed The Sun's Comin' Over The Hill at Cambridge Folk Festival this year. On cue the heavens opened and we all were drenched, even those of us who were under cover!
