Christie Williamson is from Yell in Shetland. His book Oo an Feddirs is his first full collection (available from Luath Press Ltd.). His poetry has a wonderful musical quality and he is a poet who has a wonderful mastery of the Shetland dialect. In the clips here we talk about writing within a minority culture and take a side-glance at writing in Orkney and Christie reads some of his poems.
