Product Description

Product Description

"This new album by Julie Fowlis is a carefully selected collection of songs from Gaelic Scotland. Traditional songs presented with new musical accompaniments, this record is all about the songs, and all about the story. With lush accompaniments and arrangements, this record really showcases the strength and maturity of Julie's voice; a change, she says, which has come after having two children. 'A great singer and friend of mine told me when I was expecting my first child that my voice would change, and he was right. I feel now that this is the true sound of my voice.'
During the four years since her last studio album release, Julie has spent time researching Gaelic culture and tradition through a Masters degree and an Artist in Residence project with one of Europe's most ambitious digital archive projects, Tobar an Dualchais. She has also developed her career in broadcasting, presenting for Sky Arts HD, BBC Radio 2 and 4 and BBC Scotland and ALBA TV. She also recorded and produced music for the Grammy/Oscar/Golden Globe winning animation film, Disney Pixar's 'Brave', and has been awarded a number of accolades, including an Honorary Doctor of Music degree. Her brush with Hollywood has influenced her reach and audience but she remains grounded and connected to the traditions of her homeland.
Featuring fantastic musicians Éamon Doorley, Duncan Chisholm, Tony Byrne, Donald Shaw, Tom Doorley, Ewen Vernal, Iain Sandilands, Micheal McGoldrick, RANT fiddles and more, 'Gach Sgeul/Every Story' is another extraordinary recording from one of Scotland's brightest jewels."

Darn you, Aly Bain and Jerry Douglas, for costing me yet more money! There was some delicious Gaelic singing from Julie and Karen Matheson on the latest, and so when I saw this, I just had to have it. And I'm glad - pleasantly sung, pleasantly played, and it somehow doesn't matter that I can't understand a blind word of what she's saying!

The fourth solo release by Julie Fowlis is a real treasure. She has never sounded better and the beautiful arrangements and production of Gach Sgeul makes this possibly her best album so far. The opening track A Ghaoil, Leig Dhachaigh Gum Mhathair Mi is a lovely introduction. The musicians added to her already steller band are among the best anywhere and the playing is flawless throughout. Do Chalum is the track that stands out for me but every track is such quality.
A geniune classic from a golden voice.

Beautifully rich in tone and texture, this is a wonderful collection of songs, lovingly sung.
This is the first album I have of Julie's, I doubt it will be the last.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gach Sgeul Should Be Heard 2 Mar 2014
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Julie Fowlis' fourth studio album is surely her best yet. Gach Sgeul is a beautiful mixture of love songs and lullabies, fast and slow, tales of old and new, all of which are sung in Julie's native tongue. Danns' A Luideagan Odhar, Smeorach Chlann Domhnaill, Cadal Ciarach Mo Luran, Ribinnean Riomhach and Siud Thu 'Ille Ruiadh Ghallain are the best examples of this lovely musical tapestry. There is music to suit all moods on this album. Julie once again proves that music speaks to the heart.

A delightful album with great new material. She already has some amazing songs for encores when she plays live. I think that she now has another 11 songs that are set to become Julie Fowlis 'standards'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Excellent Album 14 April 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you like the other music produced by Julie Fowlis, I would highly recommend this, her latest album. As with her other music, the combination of the interesting Gaelic songs with a stunning voice makes it a pleasure to listen to, and yet the album is unique in that it is different from the work that she has produced so far. It is well worth a listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magical music 29 July 2014
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Sublime. Reminds me of Sissel a bit. Doesn't matter if you don't understand the language. When Enya sings in Irish or Sissel in Norwegian it just makes their voices sound all the more magical and that is what I found with this album. A big thank you to Nicola Benedetti for getting Julie to guest on her latest album otherwise I may never have discovered her.

If you want genuine, honest, Gaelic music, you must get this album, and her others. She is a wonderfully natural Gaelic singer/musician and a great down to earth person.
