mairi morrison & alasdair roberts - Urstan
**Includes lucubrate liner-notes in Gaelic and English** Alasdair Roberts and Mairi Morrison nourish the roots of Gaelic Scottish tradition with a fine collaborative album. Mairi is from Bragar on the far westerly Isle Of Lewis, and although she now lives in Glasgow, she retains a strong knowledge of traditional songs from her home. Ceol's Craic - a Glasgow-based club devoted to promoting Gaelic arts in the city - brought the pair together for 'Urstan' (a Lewis word for a dram of whiskey to celebrate the birth of child) , a suite of mostly traditional standards together with a few written by themselves. tehy're played by Stevie Jones (bass), Alastair Caplin (fiddle) and Alex Neilson (drums) in a modern style, assisted by guest appearances from Glasgow regulars Michael John McCarthy (Zoey van Goey), David McGuinness (Concerto Caledonia), Ross McRae and Richard Merchant (Second Hand Marching Band), Peter Nicholson (The One Ensemble), Mike Hastings (Trembling Bells) and piobaireachd authority Allan McDonald.
