SYMBIOSIS II, the latest album from Ross Ainslie and Ali Hutton was recently a Featured Album of the Month on Folk Radio UK. In his review of the album, Neil McFadyen concluded “Taking their accomplished blend of acoustic and electronic on ever more intoxicating adventures, Ross Ainslie & Ali Hutton have yet again proven themselves to be not only masters of Scottish traditional music but at the very forefront of the movement that continues to breathe new life into that music, inspiring the next generation. Symbiosis was beguiling, Symbiosis II is utterly hypnotic.” Read the full review here.
Going by the video from their album launch at the Drygate, Glasgow (with a full band and string section) in which they perform Action, a brace of tunes (Action Junkie Extraordinaire & Take Control), they delivered their own unique intoxicating blend in style in front of a very delighted audience.
SYMBIOSIS are Ross Ainslie, Ali Hutton and Producer Andrea Gobbi, featuring Jenn Butterworth, Duncan Lyall, Steven Byrnes and Martin O’Neill along with string section Laura Wilkie, Graham Mackenzie, Seonaid Aitken and led by Patsy Reid. Filmed and Edited by Somhairle Macdonald.
