Naidheachd/ News & Stuth
NEW DUO ALBUM OUT MAY 2019
The debut album from these two stalwarts of the traditional music will be released on Thursday 9th May.
Combining years of experience playing with bands such as Blazin' Fiddles and Cliar, multi-instrumentalists, and stalwarts of the traditional music world, Iain MacFarlane & Ingrid Henderson create a sound which is reflective of the stunning, culture-rich Lochaber area they grew up in. Based mainly on harp and fiddle, and mixing traditional and newly written material, they combine rousing marches, jigs and reels with poignant slow airs of love and loss, giving the listener a unique insight into the rich culture of the West Highlands. The album was recorded in their Old Laundry Studio, Glenfinnan.
“Stories of the derivation of tunes and recollections enrich MacFarlane’s superbly fluent, always expressive way with a melody” Rob Adams, The Herald
“Ingrid is a musician of quite outstanding calibre, a virtuoso in terms of sensibility.” Living Tradition
