Description

A debut album from a distinctive new singer and guitarist from Scotland who is already attracting a lot of interest. Every now and again Scotland produces a male singer with real class. Archie Fisher, Ian Campbell, Dick Gaughan, Bobby Eaglesham, Rod Paterson spring to mind. Now there's Ewan McLennan a young folk artist who has been making headlines over the last year, performing festivals, clubs, and concert halls across the country. His music combines traditional music from around Britain and beyond with an inevitable concentration on the music from Scotland where he grew up and his own self-penned songs that are receiving critical acclaim in their own right. BBC Radio 2's Mike Harding has said of Ewan's singing, 'he sings beautifully, with great sincerity, great empathy, he's terrific!'. His guitar playing is influenced by the rigour and technique from his years of studying classical guitar for his degree followed by further tuition from guitar supremo, Martin Simpson, but retains a unique, compelling sound in which his immersion in folk music is evident. His playing covers the broad range folk music has to offer, from powerful unaccompanied song to dance tunes and melancholic airs strikingly arranged for the guitar, from his own earthy and socially-aware contemporary songwriting to his personal forte of ballads.
