Donald Black’s – Bho m’ Chridhe – Album of The Week 29 April 2017

Local ‘lad’ from Benderloch Argyll, Donald Black, has been playing the harmonica from the tender age of 4! Which he played for ‘fun’ until being ‘discovered’ by Phil Cunningham in 1993! And the rest as the saying goes is history ! Donald was picked up by Greentrax and his first album was released in 1995 the first of 4 albums. ‘Bho m’ Chridhe’ – ‘From My Heart’ – is his fifth album ! – not to mention the collaborations on a further 7 albums!
Donald has gigged extensively from Moffat to Moscow, Tarbet to Tonder,  and from  Killin to Kansas at major festivals throughout the UK and Europe – Donald has established himself as a leading light of the Scottish harmonica!

This is a sunning album that you will not want to miss!

Cormac Begley – Album of The Week 15th April 2017

 

Album of The Week is Cormac Begley’s first solo album  

 

 

 

 

Haling from the West-Kerry Begley family, his father Brendan being his first tutor/teacher , ‘heart and philosophy of music’,  Cormac’s influences can also be traced to other musicians from West-Kerry, East-Clare and Sliabh Luachra. While it’s no surprise that he performs in other projects, the list is long with names that include Clíodhna Ní Bheaglaoich (fiddle, viola and sean nós dancer), Jack Talty (concertina), Caoimhín O Raghallaigh (Hardanger d’amore) and Liam Ó Maonlaí (singer and multi-instrumentalist). He also performs in ‘Concertina’, a trio featuring Noel Hill and Jack Talty; and with the band Ré, featuring Liam Ó Maonlaí, Maitiu O Casaide, Eithne Ní Chatháin and Peter O Toole.

 

‘All of the pieces of music that feature on this album instantly struck a chord with me the first time I heard them. My approach here has been simply to connect as honestly as possible with them. I wanted to produce a solo concertina album using the full range of concertinas from bass, baritone, treble to piccolo, and to highlight some of the instrument’s possibilities spanning across seven octaves. Each track is one take, featuring one concertina and are all free from studio manipulation. I have sourced previously unrecorded music, new compositions and other tunes within the tradition that have been my companions and my internal soundtrack during my life to date.

 

1.Reels – Yellow Tinker / Ríl Mhór Bhaile An Chalaidh
2.Polkas – Polka John /Camino Polka
3.Schottisches – Joe Bane’s / The Streamstown Jig

Interview with Southern Halo on Stewart Fenwick’s Celtic Country Sunday 16 April 12-2 pm

 

 

On this Sunday’s Celtic Country, I’ll be talking with Southern Halo  , who popped into Celtic Music Radio on their recent visit to Glasgow,

 

 

 

 

Christina, Natalia and Hannah are from the blues town of Cleveland, deep in the Mississippi Delta. Although they were raised on their blues, Nashville came calling, and in 2014, they were finalists at the Texaco Country Showdown at The Ryman (the traditional home of The Grand Ole Opry).

They have a modern Country pop sound, and have picked up lots of airplay on both sides of the Atlantic with their recent radio singles including the catchy “Little White Dress”, “Rewind” and their latest   release“Living Like That”. All from their self titled debut album.

Guest – Alasdair  and Ross of ‘WHɎTE’ on Travels With My Auntie Liz Tues 11th April 8-10pm

 

 

Join Auntie Liz with Alasdair and Ross on Travels With My Auntie Liz 8-10 pm Tues 11 April
Who will bring you up to date on what they are doing and their tour starting on 13 April

 

 

 

Alasdair C Whyte
Brought up on the Inner Hebridean island of Mull within a family of musicians and singers, Alasdair was involved in traditional music from a young age. His principal musical interests lie in interpreting traditional Gaelic songs and composing original music and song.

 

 

 

 

Ross Whyte
Ross Whyte is a Glasgow-based composer, originally from Aberdeen. He completed a PhD at the University of Aberdeen where his field of research was concerned with impermanence in audio-visual intermedia and headphone-specific composition.

 

 

 

 

 

WHɎTE is a collaboration between electronic composer and musician, Ross Whyte and Gaelic singer-songwriter, Alasdair Whyte.
The collaboration began as a commission by the organisation Ceòl ‘s Craic to bring together artists from the fields of electronic and traditional music for a live performance.  Taking inspiration from Alasdair’s research interest in 17th- and 18th- century Gaelic song and poetry, the duo began working on new ambient electronic arrangements of several rarely-heard songs as well as original compositions.  Their music has drawn comparisons with Sigur Rós and Martyn Bennett..
Following several successful live performances throughout Scotland and radio play on BBC Radio Scotland’s ‘Travelling Folk’, WHɎTE’s debut release – ‘Fairach’  was recorded in the late summer of 2016 at the University of Aberdeen and in a cave beneath Dunnottar Castle and ‘Album of The Week on CMR in December 2016. WHɎTE were also finalists at The Danny Kyle Open Stage at The Spree 2016 in October – unfortunately, their album launch was the same night as their Album Launch.  They went on to get a ‘Danny’ at this years Celtic Connections – again they could not pick up their bottle of bubbly! BUT they will receive their certificates and bubbly on ‘Travels With My Auntie Liz’ !
