Product Description

Product Description

This is the debut solo release from one of Scotland's foremost traditional singers, Fiona Hunter and features a cast of some of the UK's top instrumentalists. After nearly a decade as vocalist and cellist of award-winning folk band Malinky, Fiona Hunter is stepping out in front of her own band of accomplished players and gaining a deserved reputations as one of the finest young singers on the Scottish folk music scene today, with her fresh interpretations of songs of her native Glasgow and of the Scottish Travellers. In pursuit of the latter she has worked with members of the Fetterangus Stewart family, the last tradition-bearers of this celebrated folk song dynasty. Her academic qualifications in the field are of the first order - a BA in Scottish Music from the Royal Scottish Academy and studies at the Smithsonian Institute in the USA - but it's her passion and natural ability to inhabit her material that sets her apart. This eponymous release is Fiona's highly anticipated debut solo album, featuring songs from her native Glasgow and beyond. The recording will also feature a cast of some of the finest instrumentalists currently gracing the traditional music scene, including Mike Vass, Matheu Watson, Euan Burton and Gillian Frame.

I keep coming back to this review, because I can't do it right. It's hard to put into words what some can put into music.

For those whose hearts yearn for another Malinky album, this new recording comes as a welcome anodyne. Malinky had many musical strengths, and to my ear, the band really hit its peak with the Flower and Iron album. Fiona Hunter's vocals, musicianship and scholarship were a big part of the appeal of Flower and Iron. To be sure, this isn't Malinky, but Fiona Hunter carries forward the same high musical standard under her own name. As you might expect, the album is mostly traditional Scots tunes and songs, with one from Robert Burns (The Weary Pund of Tow), one of Robert Tannahill's (Braes O'Gleniffer), and two contemporary compositions in traditional style. Ewan McVicar's song, "Shift and Spin", is given a delightful treatment by Fiona. The street ballad, "The Bleacher Lass", is given a fine treatment, leaving "my heart bleedin', baith nicht and mornin'
For the bleacher lassie of Kelvinhaugh." "MacCrimmon's Lament" is a cri du coeur as dark, deep, and wide as the Atlantic in winter. Beautifully done, Fiona.

The album itself surveys the many familiar varieties of Scots songs, from cruel murder ballads to tales of love, with a humorous finale. Mike Vass comes over from the Flower and Iron album and his own projects to lend a hand with the production and some fine string accompaniment. I am delighted by this release from Fiona Hunter, and recommend it heartily. For those interested, a caveat: the recording is released by Rusty Squash Horn Records, with an Arts Trust Scotland imprimatur. This *may* be a recording of limited availability in the States, so ignore the hefty price, and get it while you can. You won't regret it. (Besides, we want to encourage her to make more!)
