Close harmony a-capella group of women singers from the Lowlands of Scotland. Harmony and solo singing with instrumental accompaniment on some tracks.
This group of five women from Edinburgh - Claire Lamond, Rebecca McKinney, Sylvia McGowan, Eileen Penman and Elaine Wallace - came together with a shared love of traditional music and singing to form Stairheid Gossip.
The songs on the album reflect the diversity of their musical interests, from Scotland to South Africa and from ballads to bluegrass, but they are all celebrations of the lives of everyday folk - in love, work, conflict and peace.
Great songs, some weel kent and some less so. A joyous collection.
Recorded in 2001 at Kevock Digital Studios, Lasswade, by Ian McCalman.
