Skerryvore - EVO (CD)

1. Skerryvore - EVO (CD)

Ref: TYREE09CD

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.

Charley Pride releasees his first new studio album in six years. Music in My Heart isPride's first record since 2011's Choices. On Music in My Heart, Pride shares 13 new songs produced by Billy Yates. The album remains true to Pride's traditional county roots: The songs' writers include Whisperin' Bill Anderson, Ben Peters, Tommy Collins, "Country" Johnny Mathis and Yates himself; Yates' own musical history -- "his self-produced albums show a strong respect for traditional country," Pride explains in a press release -- also helped Pride keep his eye on a traditional sound. "My goal was to record the best traditional country album possible. But I also wanted someone else to handle all of the producer chores so that I could focus more on my singing," Pride explains. "Finding the right songs took a while, and we both keep busy schedules, so this album took longer to finish than I'm used to. But we did find some wonderful songs, and I'm very happy with how everything sounds. I hope everyone will enjoy listening to the album as much as I enjoyed making it."

HEX is the much-anticipated new album from Scottish outfit Hò-rò. Winners in the Up and Coming Artist of the Year category at 2017’s MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards, this young band from the Scottish Highlands & Islands release their second album on Friday 25th May 2018.

Two years on from the release of their first album, Hò-rò were raring to get back into the studio. Over the past year their live shows have grown from the original four-piece into a six-piece - with this has come a development in their sound, widely showcased on their second album. With the artwork and title portraying a hexagon theme, the band have used this to illustrate the six different musical approaches they took when making the album.

Each of the six members - Calum MacPhail, Lucy Doogan, Sean Cousins, Crisdean MacDonald, Paul Martin & David Calum Macmillan - bring their own musical background and style to the live performance and this has been reflected in the album: a unique sound that draws inspiration from each individual’s musical tastes and background. Hò-rò’s line-up features bagpipes, border pipes, accordion, fiddle and whistles juxtaposing with guitar, keyboards, drums and bodhran. This diverse instrumental mix is complemented by Gaelic and Scottish song.

John and Jim’s debut album features an eclectic mix of many of the favourite songs from their live act with contributions from some of the most talented contemporary songwriters from Scotland and further afield.
Graham Miles’ haunting ‘Eldorado’ hints at a life of missed opportunities while Iain Ingram’s ‘Calton Rose’ and ‘Braes o’ Appin’ are love songs in the Scottish tradition. Steven Clark’s ‘Coming Home’ talks of the plight of the many refugees cast adrift in the world today. John and Jim’s love of Americana is also represented in the rollicking ‘Truck Driving Man’.

John and Jim have been playing in folk bands since the 1960s. John was a founder member of The Clydesiders in 1968 and remained with them till they became inactive in 2000. Initially the fiddler in the band, John developed into a multi-instrumentalist and plays a range of instruments on the album.
Jim started his folk song career in Edinburgh with The Portlands before moving to Glasgow and playing for many years in Carterhall. Jim plays guitar and shares the vocal duties with John.
