Celtic Music Radio’s Album Of The Week 2 Dec Eilidh Shaw & Ross Martin – Birl-esque


Both are probably best known for their work with two top traditional bands; Eilidh with The Poozies and Ross with Daimh, although some may recall the early 2000s when they made up 2 fifths of the cult folk explosion that was Harem Scarem.

Between them they have been at the heart of the Scottish Music scene and over the last 20 years have toured the world both with their own groups and performing as guest artists with a vast array of top performers, clocking up over 100 album appearances with names as diverse as Gaelic Superstar Julie Fowlis, Alt-Country legend Bonnie Prince Billy, Classic Crooner Tony Christie and World Music/ Jazz Fusion impresario Arnaud Ciapolino.”

“Our first duo tour was a great success, we travelled the length of Scotland from Orkney to Eyemouth during October and November. Thanks to everyone who came out for a listen; don’t worry if you missed us, here’s a clip from our concert at Douglas’s House in Edinburgh…”
