“Following on from their debut album Shed Life, Highland Time is the new release from techno-trad fusion group, Sketch. Cultivated by percussionist and programmer Iain Copeland, Sketch’s sound is rooted firmly in traditional music with branches that extend into the realm of modern dance beats.

Featuring a host of Scotland’s finest musical talent. With vocals from Gaelic singer Darren Maclean and a guest appearance by Maeve Mackinnon, the album truly showcases the vibrancy of Scotland’s traditional music scene.

Highland Time isn’t a collision of the old with the new – with traditional sounds of the fiddle and the pipes soaring above a subculture of electro bass and percussive loops – it is a bold statement of the here and the now.”

Band Members:-

Darren Maclean – Gaelic Singer
Angus Binnie – Pipes / Whistle
Seamas Maclennan – Bouzouki/ Guitar
Neil Ewart – Fiddle
Angus Binnie – Pipes & Whistles

Joined  by guest vocalists – Jerry Burns, Karen Matheson and Siobhan Wilson!

These heartfelt self-penned songs by Alistair is a journey in itself, bringing memories, wishes and dreams.  Alistair’s learning journey took him from a very early age around the traditional festivals of Scotland learning from the tradition bearers the ways  of telling a story through song, which he brings together in his new CD. Alistair also a finalist in The Young Traditional Musician of the Year in 2011 went on the Young Trad Tour from where he was able to not only pick up the craft of performing and touring with other musicians but of making life long friends. Alistair’s singing has lead him to be invited to collaborate on stage with established musicians such as Karen Matheson, Craig Armstrong and Jerry Burns. Over the last year he has supported Tiny Ruins, Alice Boman, and Jo Mango amongst others
To produce his album he had no hesitation is getting the support of Louis Abbott lead singer from Admiral Fallow who also contributed layered percussion. Engineer Jamie Savage, part of the Chem 19 empire,  and mastered  by Kenny Macleod. Craig Armstrong, world renowned film composer arranged the strings on the opening track, Deep Blue Sea. Following this collaboration, Alistair was invited to perform at Craig’s concert during Celtic Connections 2015.

With this CD he definitely has a journey to continue
Alistair was in conversation with Liz Clark
