Description

Long awaited album of slow airs and melodies from Greentrax Recordings Ltd. Over the years Greentrax Recordings has received many requests for an album exclusively of slow airs and reflective melodies and this album has been released to fulfil that need. The Greentrax back-catalogue was carefully searched and after much deliberation we arrived at this selection. This truly outstanding compilation yet again emphasises the strength of the Greentrax back-catalogue. The music is performed by many of Scotland's most celebrated musicians and reflects the playing of almost all of Scotland's traditional instruments including the clarsach, concertina, fiddle, guitar, Highland bagpipe, Scottish small pipes, piano, whistles and even a track with the Gaita Asturian (pipe). You will find tracks by such well known groups as Ceolbeg, Fiddlers' Bid, The Cast and The Whistlebinkies; two excellent duos consisting of Xose Munoz and Simon Bradley and Willie Hunter and Violet Tulloch; extremely talented soloists in Wendy Stewart, Gordon Gunn, Ian Hardie, Hamish Moore, Tony McManus, Iain MacInnes, Lorne MacDougall, Gary West and Jimmy Young. All the solo tracks have top accompanists from within the Scottish music scene. This is Volume 15 in the Celtic Collections Series. It is a mid-price range and reflects outstanding value for money but at the same time this is quality product.
