This cracking album marks Brian McNeill's musical half-century. Brian plays guitar, baritone guitar, fiddle, octave fiddle, mandocello, bouzouki and concertina, and he wrote and sang all of the songs featured - emphasising what an exceptional talent this man is.
All of Brian's recorded work since leaving Battlefield Band, of which he was a founder member, has been released on the Greentrax label, and the partnership is a strong one. In addition to recording for Greentrax, Brian has also produced several fine albums for the label.
Brian currently tours widely in North America and Europe, in addition to a heavy UK schedule.
A companion book to the recently-released Greentrax CD Dhannsadh Gun Dannsadh: Dance-Songs of The Scottish Gaels (Scottish Tradition Series vol 28).
This book was originally published in 1901 in solfa, and still remains the only one published on this subject. A valuable book of puirt containing over 120 Gaelic songs, available again to Gaelic singers and musicians in this 2012 edition by Taigh Na Teud.
With accompanying English translations for Gaelic learners and an introduction and historical notes by the editor, Dr William Lamb.
“This newest edition of Puirt-à-Beul renews our insight into the musical form and expressive voice of Gaelic Scotland…” (Julie Fowlis)
