- Mark Radcliffe hailed her voice and songs as “enchanting, beguiling and as fascinating as songs by Kate Bush and Björk” and KT Tunstall described her voice as "formidable and amazingly rhythmic". The elfin figure they are describing is Julie Fowlis, a talented singer and instrumentalist from Scotland. She is the BBC Radio 2 Folk Singer of the Year 2008 and in a few short years has taken the music scene by storm, gathering a small army of fans around the world. In 2007 she a guest on "Later...with Jools Holland" and was a special guest on the critically acclaimed "Transatlantic Sessions" series. Her latest album "cuilidh" was voted "Album of the Year 2007" at the Scots Trad Music Awards, and recently she was the subject of a one-hour documentary "Bliadhna Julie" or "Julie's Year". However she is somewhat of an enigma as she sings in a language only understood by around 60,000 people - Scottish Gaelic. Interested?

NEW "dual" album

Clàr ùr - new album - "dual"
Thòisich mi fhèin, Éamon Doorley, Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh agus Ros Màrtainn a' chluich còmhla mu cheithir bhliadhna air ais - airson cuairt sònraichte ann an Alba agus Éirinn. Chòrd e riunn glan. Bhon àm sin, chùm sinn ris a' phroiseact agus tha sinn air a bhith gu math trang a' clàradh fad trì miosan a-nisd, agus tha mi air mo dhoigh innse gu bheil clàr ùr againn. Thug sinn an aimn "dual" air a' phroiseact - facal a bhios a' ciallachadh eadar-fhighte anns a dà chànan.
Myself, Éamon, Muireann and Ross started performing together around four years ago, after Muireann and myself had a great sing-song backstage at the Tonder Festival in Denmark. The four of us got together for a one-off tour around Scotland and Ireland, and had a great time. We were performing material entirely in Irish and Scottish Gaelic plus instrumental music too, and we have stuck with it ever since, doing tours whenever we can find time. We have busy in the studio for the last few months and are now delighted to announce that we have a new album! It will be called "dual" a word which means to interlace, twine or braid, and can also mean one's inheritance. The word means the same in both Irish and Scottish Gaelic. The album looks at the strong and ancient links and similarities between the music and song of Gaelic Scotland and Ireland, plus of course the differences that have developed over the years.
The album will be on general release from the end of October, but you can get a sneaky copy of the album next week. The "dual" project will be performing three shows at the Blas Festival, plus two more shows in the Hebrides and this will be the only way to get an early copy of the album in Scotland. Here's where we will be:
Sunday Sept 7th Phipps Hall, Beauly
Monday Sept 8th Aros, Portree
Tuesday Sept 9th The Limetree, Fort William
Friday Sept 12th An Lanntair, Stornoway
Saturday Sept 13th Talla Chàirinis, North Uist
The album will be released by Machair Records and we are grateful to the Arts Council for Ireland and Iomairt Cholm Cille for support and encouragement. Hope to see some of you at the shows!
PS We have put up a sneak preview of the first track on myspace.....hope you like it
Le tòrr gaoil,
