Skerryvore - EVO (CD)

3. Skerryvore - EVO (CD)


No blade of grass stands a chance of growing under the feet of this energetic line-up. Twice winners of Scotland's Traditional Music Awards coveted 'Live Act of the Year' (2016 and 2011) their upward trajectory has taken them from a small Hebridean island on a global journey often away from the well-trodden gig circuit for prestigious milestone performances in New York's Central Park, at the Ryder Cup in Louisville and the Shanghai Expo, China.

Recorded at the renowned Castlesound Studios in East Lothian and Carriage House Studios in Conneticut, Evo is instantly engaging. An expectant drone kicks in for the haunting tour de force opening number Martin Gillespie's tongue-in-cheek tune 'The Exorcists', triggered by the band's exorcising of spirits of a different kind from promoter Gordon MacKenzie's Oman home in his absence. Mackenzie remarked: 'If you want spirits removed from your house, call in the Skerries!'; It segues into Scott Wood's tune Donnie's. Opening at full throttle with that big emphatic sound of thundering drums and pipes, as rich as a Scottish single malt, it lays down the gauntlet for this captivating album that for 45 minutes draws you into another world that is vibrant and emotive in equal measures.

Dalglish's songs start with 'At the End of the Line', with its opening keyboard refrain. With his engaging, clear voice he ponders the global touring shuttle '4000 miles in the sky till the wheels hit the ground' and the location of Paradise and concludes it is 'where your people are', totally changing the mood created in the opening number. And this is what Skerryvore is so good at - migrating from the big blast numbers to the heartfelt reflective tracks. Dalglish has these songs down to a fine art, from the infectious 'Hold On' to the hopefulness of 'Waiting on the Sun' and the catchy mainstream-nudging love song 'Take My Hand', released as a single. Another stand out number is his life-affirming 'Live Forever', a remixed version of the original song recorded in Conneticut. It provided the soundtrack for Scottish Tourism's 'Wild About Argyll' campaign and hit No 1 in the iTunes World music chart last year, followed by a 70-date Live Forever tour of UK, Italy, Spain, Denmark, The Netherlands and USA.

Fiddler Craig Espie's 'Mile High' tune set apparently recalls his fainting episode on board a flight home from Spain, with little sympathy from his bandmates. But there s nothing light-headed about this number which is fast and furious -Mile High Header being followed by the aptly-titled 'Momentum', with the pipes let loose.

Elsewhere there are covers of the late Aberdeenshire piper-composer Gordon Duncan's lively and intricate tune 'Trip to Modera' and Glaswegian songwriter Alex Wayt's rocky song 'Borderline'. 'Soraidh Slan', a slow, respectful air composed and performed by Martin Gillespie, is the poignant penultimate track - a farewell to loved ones lost in 2017 before 'The Rise', also written by Martin, ends on an optimistic, upbeat note with all musicians at full pelt to bring the music full circle.

Trail West - From the Sea to the City (CD)

5. Trail West - From the Sea to the City (CD)


From The Sea To The City is the latest album from Trail West, a band leading the thriving scene of Gaels in the city of Glasgow.

Having started out as a four-piece line-up with strong links to the Hebridean Isles of Tiree and South Uist, they have now enhanced their line-up with Jonathan Gillespie from Glasgow on keyboard and vocals along with Allan J Nairn from Ardnamurchan on electric guitar.

From The Sea To The City refers to the journey that many Gaels have to take at some point in their life, moving from their homes by the sea to the city, to pursue further educational and working opportunities. The album is a broad mix from various genres, representing the numerous influences that Trail West have had from both their rural and city upbringings.

The album follows on from their last release, which highlighted a key development in the band’s outlook, with a wide selection of songs becoming an integral part of the band’s repertoire alongside the recognisable accordion and whistle combination of Seonaidh Maclntyre and Ian Smith.

Now with the added talent of Jonathan Gillespie leading three of the songs alongside Seonaidh Maclntyre’s familiar vocals in both English and Gaelic, this album delivers a polished quality to the band’s sound yet with total appreciation for the tradition they are inspired from.

Daimh - The Rough Bounds (CD)

9. Daimh - The Rough Bounds (CD)


Translated from the Gaelic Na Garbh Chrìochan, the Rough Bounds is the area of West Lochaber where Dàimh were formed 20 years ago. Still based in the area, the band’s roots remain firmly tied to the region by the enduring connections of the 3 remaining founding members.

Historically regarded as an unruly and inaccessible Jacobite stronghold from which Bonnie Prince Charlie both launched his campaign and subsequently fled from in defeat 6 months later; the landscape of the Rough Bounds is reflected in the breath-taking beauty of Ellen MacDonald’s vocals, the wild grandeur of Dàimh’s pipe and fiddle led instrumentals and the band’s ongoing mission to defend and promote the Gaelic culture.

Bringing a mixture of seldom-heard songs passed down from family to better-known puirt à beul and ballads, Ellen MacDonald confidently takes command of the vocals and proves she is now a firmly established star in the gaelaxy. The songs cover all of the expected Dàimh themes; drinking, fighting, heartbreak and heading off to sea, never to be seen again.

George Duff - The Collier Laddie (CD)

17. George Duff - The Collier Laddie (CD)


George Duff is widely regarded as one of Scotland’s finest singers and interpreters of traditional Scots songs. After a lifetime’s singing, this is his debut solo recording.

An accomplished guitarist, hailing from the mining community of Midlothian, George started working for the National Coal Board as an engineer straight from school and worked in both Newtongrange and Bilston Glen, Loanhead until their untimely demise in the 1980’s.

So, George’s repertoire is naturally inclined towards the powerful songs about coal mining, but he is also a respected exponent of the songs of Robert Burns, and equally enjoys the traditional ballads and melodies of Ireland. Contemporary writers are also represented in his repertoire, with songs here from the pens of notable Scots wordsmiths Hamish Henderson, Alistair Hulett, Michael Marra, Geordie McIntyre and Brian McNeill.

George Duff (vocals, guitars & cittern) is joined on 'The Collier Laddie' (BEAGCD005) by some of his dearest friends who also happen to be some of Scotland’s finest musicians, including Kevin Macleod of The Occasionals (bouzoukis, cittern, mandolins, tenor guitar & resonator tenor guitars), John Martin of the Tannahill Weavers, Ossian and The Easy Club (fiddle & octave fiddle), Mike Katz of the Battlefield Band (whistle, low whistle & small pipes), Jim Wilson (accordion) Mark Dunlop of Malinky (bodhran & percussion), Martin White (electric slide guitar) and Rob Hiley (piano).

This is old style Scottish singing, beautifully performed, and as profound as the mine shafts sunk into the coal-black spaces which deeply influence the singing of George Duff, 'The Collier Laddie' himself.

Gaelic Proverbs (Paperback)

20. Gaelic Proverbs (Paperback)

Ref: 9781912476244

Designed for those interested in the lore and tradition of a language, spoken until comparatively recently across much of Scotland, this is a compendium of Gaelic sayings and usage. The book includes notes, historical and social, and comparisons with sayings in different languages. Alexander Nicolson, one of the best scholars of his day, has gathered together a wide-ranging collection covering such diverse topics as women and marriage, wise men and fools, friendship and courage, and poverty and wealth.

The proverbs appear in Gaelic along with the English translation, carefully preserving the pith of the original. These sayings, which as Nicolson remarks in his Preface, 'come from thatched cottages and not baronial and academic halls', reflect keen intelligence and a distinct sense of humour. This is a comprehensive and important collection, with a foreword by Ian MacDonald of the Gaelic Books Council.
