Alistair Ogilvy – ‘July Moon’

Jul 25, 2015

 

Tune in from 12 noon and midnight this Saturday and 7pm on Monday to hear about our new Album of the Week. Alistair Ogilvy – “July Moon” , released on 4th May 2015.

 

 

 

Alistair Ogalvies newly released 2nd album ‘JULY MOON’ features mainly original material, amazing collaborations and guest musicians. From his current band line up of Alistair on vocals /harmonium/keys, The stunning Orkadian Kirstan Harvey on fiddle and from Washington Irvine band ,Kieran Heather on guitar. 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
