Apr 25, 2015

Air Diluain 27 Giblean (6 -7f) bidh Ceòl ’s Craic a’ cur fàilte air a’ chòmhlan ciùil Canach dhan stiùideo aig Celtic Music Radio. Tha Alana NicAonghais, seinneadair Gàidhlig à Uibhist, am fìdhlear cliùteach Robbie Greig a tha fileanta sa Ghàidhlig ged a thogadh e ann an Dun Eideann agus an sàr-sheinneadair agus neach-ciùil Caitlin NicNèill air tighinn còmhla mar a chòmhlan-ciùil Canach. Agus ged a tha iad air am bogadh ann an cultar agus dualchas ceòl traidiseanta na Gàidhlig, agus tha an spèis aca dhan chultar sin soilleir anns a’ cheòl aca, tha iad cuideachd air soirbheachadh ann an rudeigin ùr agus tùsail a chruthachadh a tha gan comharrachadh mar còmhlan le stoidhle agus macmeanmainn.

 

On Monday 27 April (6 – 7pm) Ceòl ’s Craic welcome the young musical trio Canach to the Celtic Music Radio studio. Vocalist and musician Alana MacInnes, a native Gaelic speaker from Uist, the award winning fiddle player Robbie Greig from Edinburgh, also a Gaelic speaker, and their lead vocalist the highly gifted singer and musician Caitlin McNeill have come together to form Canach. They are a band steeped in their culture and heritage, demonstrating great respect for their inherited tradition, who have also succeeded in bringing flare, originality and imagination to their own exciting new compositions.

 

Kip Moore chats to Stewart Fenwick

Apr 22, 2015

Kip Moore, one of the brightest new names to come out of Nashville in recent years, talks with Stewart Fenwick, on Celtic Country, Sunday from 12 noon.

 

Singer-songwriter Kip Moore explored his own experiences of growing up in a small Georgia town and working diligently for years to achieve his musical dreams to create his MCA Nashville debut album, Up All Night. The album poetically captures those unforgettable coming-of-age moments, especially for those longing for a life beyond a small town’s borders, as well as the roller coaster of love and heartbreak at any age.

He delivers these honest and deeply personal lyrics with a gravelly voice weathered by life’s detours and disappointments and strengthened by his dreams and unyielding determination.Up All Night, which includes the hit “Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck,” is infused with relentless intensity, both of passion and frustration, that is earning rave reviews from critics.

His energetic live shows, including a spring tour with Billy Currington and David Nail, are quickly drawing a large and enthusiastic fan base.

“For years, I have been searching for the missing link between blue-collar rock and country music,” says noted journalist/historian Robert K. Oermann, who writes for Music Row magazine. “This year, I think I have heard it. His name is Kip Moore. There is fiery, urgent intensity in his voice. His lyrics vibrate with conviction and true grit. The melodies have gripping, heart-in-throat passion. And the roaring, propulsive performances on his debut album sound like signposts on the highway to some Southern-fried Born to Run. Dare I say it? This man just might be the hillbilly Springsteen.”

Apr 19, 2015

Bidh Ceòl ’s Craic www.ceolscraic.org a’ toirt aoigheachd dhan neach-ciùil C Duncan air Celtic Music Radio eadar 6 is 7f Diluain 20 Giblean. Le màthair agus athair nan luchd-ciùil clasaigeach fhuair C Duncan bogadh ann an ceòl clasaigeach a’ tòiseachadh e fhèin le viola agus piana. Ged a chaidh e air adhart gus giotair, bass agus drumaichean ionnsachadh chaidh do chaill e an ùidh aige ann an ceòl clasaigeach a-riamh agus mu dheireadh ghabh e an cothrom clàradh mar oileanach aig an RSAMD (Conservatoire Rioghail na h-Alba). Mar sin chan eil e na iongnadh gu bheil an ceòl aige a’ nochdadh buaidhean clasaigeach agus co-aimiseireil. Tha sinn a’ coimhead air adhart gu mòr ri seisean ciùil beò bhon neach-ciùil chruthachail, tàlantach seo. Tuilleadh fiosrachaidh aig www.facebook.com/pages/Ceòl-is-Craic

 

‘His forthcoming debut album features lush choral harmonies and acoustic instrumentation, textured like contemporary dreampop and all recorded at home in Glasgow on his bedroom studio set-up. Built up one layer and one instrument at a time the results are charming lo-fi with the harmonic width of choral compositions, the sweetness of barbershop and the rough eloquence that has so readily soundtracked over the past decades.

 

Ceòl ’s Craic www.ceolscraic.org will be hosting a music session by C Duncan on Celtic Music Radio between 6 and 7pm on Monday 19 April. As the son of two classical musicians C Duncan was immersed in classical music from an early age. He studied piano and viola before learning to play guitar, bass and drums. However his fascination with classical music remained , eventually leading him to enroll at the RSAMD (now the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland). We’re very much looking forward to a live music session from this exceptionally talented young musician. For further details go to www.facebook.com/pages/Ceòl-is-Craic
