Christine Primrose helped introduce Gaelic song to a far wider audience than it had ever enjoyed before. She returns with her new album this month. “The pleasure of losing oneself in the whole collection, from beginning to end, can hardly be expressed in words.”
The latest offering from the Battlefield Band features 12 Scottish and Irish guest musicians, packed with great music and enough background information to satisfy your needs. A wonderful album that explores some of the roots and expressions of the shared tradition of Scotland and Ireland.
