Shetland Mandolin Band - Always on a Monday (CD)

1. Shetland Mandolin Band - Always on a Monday (CD)

Ref: 880992156820-BCD

Shetland Mandolin Band's first venture into the recording studio has resulted in a lightsome album of instrumental music from around the world, played by 28 mandolinists and accompanied by double bass, piano and guitar. The 12 tracks on Always on a Monday include 18 tunes from 11 countries - the earliest tune composed in 1725 and the newest in 2016. Some are well-known as mandolin tunes, others are from the traditional and country music worlds; some have a classical base and there are original 'Shetland' tunes from Jenny Henry and Nigel Hallett too.

The 'community' band first got together in 2015 with the aim of providing a setting for Shetland's mandolin players, no matter their age or ability, to meet and play tunes, as well as to encourage mandolin playing in the islands. Such has been the success of the venture that the band meets fortnightly, always on a Monday, and continues to enjoy the support and encouragement of mandolin players and the good people of Shetland. Band members are aged from 11 to 75 and include well-known, experienced players such as Gary Peterson (Hom Bru) and Trevor Jamieson (North Ness Boys) as well as players who have just set out on their musical journey and learn the instrument from tutor Jenny Henry.

Iain J Smith - Ode To Whisky (CD)

2. Iain J Smith - Ode To Whisky (CD)

Ref: IJS001-E

Ode to Whisky (Óid don Uisce Beatha Ir. gaelige) (Tha Bhuidh air an Uisge Bheadach Sc. gaidhlig) is a studio album recorded entirely in Kirkcudbright, Galloway, Scotland. It is a musical celebration of the water of life.

Just as whiskies vary from the fine Highlands and Speysides, to the peaty malts of the Islands; from the Lowland malts to the thrice distilled smooth whiskies of Ireland; from the ryes of Canada to the corns, and bourbons of Kentucky and Tennessee; so too the music here is rich and varied. But it all has one thing in common, it is music written about whisky by those who loved it.

It ranges from the baroque harp music of Turlough O'Carolan, to the grand strathspeys of Niel Gow, from the stylised dance music of the romantics to the bluegrass of Appalachia....... and much in between.

Arranged and performed entirely by Iain Smith it features pianos, bouzouki, whistles, guitars, dulcimer and banjo along with the sounds of the fiddle, pipes and harp augmented by orchestration.

The C.D. comes with a sixteen page booklet rich with information and anecdote. It also notes, humorously the correct whisky to accompany each tune.

To enjoy this music at its best take it regularly along with your favourite dram.

Ref: 880992154628-BCD

Brick By Brick is the 17th annual CD of the students of the National Centre of Excellence in Traditional Music. These CDs are well established as an acoustic yearbook, and all the material is chosen and arranged by the students themselves. There's a distinctly political flavour about this year's 'Big Songs', which says a lot about how politically engaged our young folk are becoming in this country. But there is also, as ever, a broad mix of tunes and songs old and new, including a few original compositions by the students themselves.

4. Ross Ainslie - Sanctuary (CD)

Ref: 5060358921056-BCD

This third CD from Ross Ainslie, Sanctuary, brings together a lot of his influences over the years playing in bands like Salsa Celtica and India Alba. Ross has always been a fan of the Mike Oldfield album series Tubular Bells and this album is based on the same idea and designed to be listened to like a journey.

Sanctuary is a term Ross likes to use when describing what music is for him, coming up to five years sober now Ross has been through some big changes and ways of coping with certain situations without alcohol. "I've found that I'm spending a lot of time on my own these days, being a travelling musician a lot of the social time is centred around drinking so I found it hard to be around so I would retreat to my room a lot, at first it took some time to get used to my own company but as the years have gone on I've found it to be a very productive and creative space, if I'm having a particularly bad day music is always the thing that will pick me up so that's why this album is called Sanctuary".

Ross Ainslie Inner Sanctuary is a track heavily influenced by his travels to India, it features a debut performance on Bansuri from Ross. The musicians on this album were selected very carefully and are all very comfortable in many genres, this track shows Greg Lawson playing with an Indian style. Home in Another Dimension features one of Ross's favourite musicians in the world, the one and only Zakir Hussain on tabla and also British/Indian Sarod maestro Soumik Datta. This track demonstrates a different style in writing for Ross with a definite Eastern flavour. Let the Wild Ones Roam is a straight ahead rocking set of reels with the guys in their natural habitat. Damien O'Kane adds some amazing banjo to this track.

All the music on the album is composed by Ross apart from Surroundings which was composed by Ross and Jamie Maclean.

Ross Ainslie (Highland and C smallpipes, whistles, bansuri, cittern, banjo), Steven Byrnes (acoustic guitar), Hamish Napier (piano, keyboard), James Lindsay (bass), Greg Lawson (fiddle), Cormack Byrne (drums, percussion).

5. Roddy Matthews - The High Road O'er The Border (CD)

Ref: 880992153423-BCD

The High Road O'er The Border is the new album from songwriter and fiddle player Roddy Matthews. He is joined by Keith Lauder on drums and Gary Forrest on accordion. In this album, Roddy pays tribute to places and people he holds affection for in both his native Borders and Northumberland and also in the West Highlands where part of his heart will ever be. It is here that he was inspired to play music when he was a young boy and Highland Ceilidh music was planted deep in his heart by the wonderful musicians in Moidart all those years ago. All proceeds from this album will go to Maggie's Cancer Care Charity.

"The High Road O'er The Border is the route I take most weeks to Lake Music but it is also a reference to the end of life when we shall hopefully meet again. The tunes pare for wonderful musician friends and places that have meant a lot to me throughout Scotland and both sides of the border." - Roddy Matthews
