Description

Lauren MacColl is considered one of Scotlands most expressive fiddle players. Her performances are emotive, engaging and informed by an equal helping of tradition and technique. 8239; LANDSKEIN, composed of almost entirely solo traditional airs, is an uncompromising and rare delight. Bold in its simplicity, the only addition to MacColls fiddle is the subtle, sensitive accompaniment of pianist James Ross. Recorded on location in Abriachan village hall, high in the hills above Loch Ness a space known for its fine acoustics this recording distils the finest qualities of Highland fiddle music at times haunting, enchanting, enlivening. The title LANDSKEIN suggests a thread or yarn in which the lifelines of a landscape, people, stories and memories are richly intertwined. The central thread traces the lifeline of MacColl herself, making her homeward journey to the Highlands, finding her place, awakening her senses in the hills and reconnecting with the taproot of the tradition that nurtured her.
