Julie Fowlis - Alterum (Vinyl)

4. Julie Fowlis - Alterum (Vinyl)

Ref: MACH009

Julie Fowlis originally hails from North Uist in the Outer Hebrides and is now based in the Highlands of Scotland. Firmly established as a world music artist with a natural interest and ability to cross-over into other genres and styles, she will forever be known as the singing voice of Merida, the female protagonist in the Disney-Pixar Oscar/Bafta/Golden Globe winning movie 'Brave'.

During an impressive career spanning more than a decade, with multiple awards, accolades and four studio albums, she has until now, sung primarily in Scottish Gaelic. The Latin title of Julie's fifth studio album 'alterum' gently suggests that this record is a departure from what has gone before.

Josie Duncan & Pablo Lafuente - The Morning Tempest (CD)

7. Josie Duncan & Pablo Lafuente - The Morning Tempest (CD)

Ref: 5060358921117-BCD

From self-penned tunes to the most ancient songs, in English, Gaelic and Scots, this award-winning duo showcase their musical storytelling abilities on this truly unique debut album. From the fragile and delicate to the bold and strong, with the help of some special guests.

2017 BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award Winners Josie Duncan and Pablo Lafuente are a vocal/guitar duo like no other.

Calling the Isle of Lewis and Spain home respectively, its no wonder their music doesn’t focus on one place, on one of the many strands of Scotland’s web of traditions.

They are well traveled, and well versed, in music from across the land. On guitar, and vocals in Gaelic, Scots and English, their music is a round tour, where centuries old ballads meet Gaelic puirt a beul, songs from the mines and cotton mills, as well as some original writing.

Josie’s voice, crystal clear. With its slight island twang, equally at home in any of these domains. Accompanied by Pablo’s dynamic, sensitive guitar playing, they illuminate the lyrics. The music at times sparse and haunting, at others driving and all consuming, leaving audiences stunned.

Josie Duncan (vocals), Pablo Lafuente (guitars), Graham Rorie (mandolin, flute), Rufus Huggan (cello), Robbie Greig (Fiddle), Conal McDonagh (whistles), Charlie Stewart (double bass), David Foley (bodhran), Neil Paton (percussion), Colin MacLeod (guest vocals), Hedley Benson (flugelhorn).

Cool Scots (Hardcover)

11. Cool Scots (Hardcover)

Ref: 9781912147267

What do Kenny Dalglish and Robert Louis Stevenson have in common? Or Annie Lennox and Mary Barbour? Or Joseph Knight and Sean Connery? They are but a few examples of the Scots that have shaped the cool nation we see today.

In this whacky toon-fest of character sketches, Greg Moodie presents 42 key figures in Scotland s rich and varied history. Spanning the living and the dead, the portraits range from potentially paranoid politicians and health-and-safety-loving Formula One drivers to Jacobite heroines and promiscuous poets. Basically, you get the best of the best.

Accompanying each brief biography peppered with quirky anecdotes, hilarious quips and mostly accurate facts is a psychedelic portrait that blends past and present. Ever seen Muriel Sparks sport a studded choker or James Clerk Maxwell boast two sleeves of tattoos? You will now.

For once including those cool Scottish women so often ignored in history books, Moodie presents his collection in an order deliberately designed to jolt your little minds out of their preconceived ideas of time . You ll leap between modern day musicians and 18th century science writers at the turn of each delightfully glossy page.

Lavishly illustrated throughout, Moodie celebrates Scotland s achievements, revels in its victories and occasionally blends fact and fiction.

Shetland Mandolin Band - Always on a Monday (CD)

12. Shetland Mandolin Band - Always on a Monday (CD)

Ref: 880992156820-BCD

Shetland Mandolin Band's first venture into the recording studio has resulted in a lightsome album of instrumental music from around the world, played by 28 mandolinists and accompanied by double bass, piano and guitar. The 12 tracks on Always on a Monday include 18 tunes from 11 countries - the earliest tune composed in 1725 and the newest in 2016. Some are well-known as mandolin tunes, others are from the traditional and country music worlds; some have a classical base and there are original 'Shetland' tunes from Jenny Henry and Nigel Hallett too.

The 'community' band first got together in 2015 with the aim of providing a setting for Shetland's mandolin players, no matter their age or ability, to meet and play tunes, as well as to encourage mandolin playing in the islands. Such has been the success of the venture that the band meets fortnightly, always on a Monday, and continues to enjoy the support and encouragement of mandolin players and the good people of Shetland. Band members are aged from 11 to 75 and include well-known, experienced players such as Gary Peterson (Hom Bru) and Trevor Jamieson (North Ness Boys) as well as players who have just set out on their musical journey and learn the instrument from tutor Jenny Henry.

Iain J Smith - Ode To Whisky (CD)

13. Iain J Smith - Ode To Whisky (CD)

Ref: IJS001-E

Ode to Whisky (Óid don Uisce Beatha Ir. gaelige) (Tha Bhuidh air an Uisge Bheadach Sc. gaidhlig) is a studio album recorded entirely in Kirkcudbright, Galloway, Scotland. It is a musical celebration of the water of life.

Just as whiskies vary from the fine Highlands and Speysides, to the peaty malts of the Islands; from the Lowland malts to the thrice distilled smooth whiskies of Ireland; from the ryes of Canada to the corns, and bourbons of Kentucky and Tennessee; so too the music here is rich and varied. But it all has one thing in common, it is music written about whisky by those who loved it.

It ranges from the baroque harp music of Turlough O'Carolan, to the grand strathspeys of Niel Gow, from the stylised dance music of the romantics to the bluegrass of Appalachia....... and much in between.

Arranged and performed entirely by Iain Smith it features pianos, bouzouki, whistles, guitars, dulcimer and banjo along with the sounds of the fiddle, pipes and harp augmented by orchestration.

The C.D. comes with a sixteen page booklet rich with information and anecdote. It also notes, humorously the correct whisky to accompany each tune.

To enjoy this music at its best take it regularly along with your favourite dram.

Brick By Brick is the 17th annual CD of the students of the National Centre of Excellence in Traditional Music. These CDs are well established as an acoustic yearbook, and all the material is chosen and arranged by the students themselves. There's a distinctly political flavour about this year's 'Big Songs', which says a lot about how politically engaged our young folk are becoming in this country. But there is also, as ever, a broad mix of tunes and songs old and new, including a few original compositions by the students themselves.
