I must preface this by saying that I am a lover of Scottish Gaelic music. Other artists have made headway in bringing this music to light - Mairi MacInnis, Karen Matheson and Capercaillie, Catherine-Ann MacPhee. Beautiful voices all.
While the temptation has been to modernize this music as Mouth Music has done - it elevates this earthy and vibrant cultural expression to the level of noise. Ms. MacKenzie does just the oppposite - she lifts the levels and allows them to breathe new air and the music sails to new heights. This is a cd which takes several listenings, but it will become a favorite - a delicate moment in the Gaidhealtachd! Cheeri!
