This album by Fiona J Mackenzie is the culmination of many years working with and learning about the song collections and recordings made by John Lorne Campbell and Margaret Fay Shaw in their years as Gaelic folklorists and song collectors.
As Archivist for the National Trust for Scotland in Canna House, on the island of Canna, Fiona has been privileged to look after these wonderful collections, something which has been her life’s ambition.
This album is about the contributors, the songs, how we can learn from them today, to be inspired by them and to use them to create the New from the Old.
Fiona is an award-winning and highly regarded Gaelic singer and this is her fourth album for Greentrax Recordings. This is another very important collection in the long list of Gaelic song albums released by Greentrax.
Session musicians are Katie Mackenzie (clarsach), James Duncan Mackenzie (flute, pipes), Yvonne Lyon (shruti box), Yvonne and David Lyon (keys, accordion, guitar) and Florence Cummings of Seattle (step dance).
