NorthLink Ferries to Orkney and Shetland

Lise Sinclair

Everyone at NorthLink Ferries was deeply saddened to hear the shock news that Lise Sinclair died from a brain tumor, in early August 2013.  Lise was still young and leaves behind a husband and family.  Her talent was outstanding and we were proud to have collaborated with her for the launch of our marketing campaign earlier this year.  Her poem, Fauld Up Da Feddoms, was the inspiration to our campaign “Far Isn’t Far” and we wanted to keep it authentic and used her beautiful words and voice on the video to promote the Northern Isles.

Her work with NorthLink Ferries was one tiny piece of the lovely collection of poetry and songs she has given us.  She has been taken far too early, but we are grateful for the chance to have known her and experienced her amazing talent.

The Scottish Poetry Library have written a lovely obituary that you can read here: http://www.scottishpoetrylibrary.org.uk/connect/blog/remembering-lise-sinclair
