4.0 out of 5 stars An Absolute Delight ! 23 Mar 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the debut disc by Hebridean singer Julie Fowlis and if, like me, you thought of these islands as being a bleak and harsh environment and you expected traditional music from there to reflect this, then be prepared for a shock ! This is a record of quite beguilingly beautiful music which will brighten up any day.

My first introduction to Ms. Fowlis came via the outstanding "Trans-Atlantic Sessions" where she frequently steals the show. She has a very lovely voice and she has the benefit here of wonderful production courtesy of Iain McDonald. Many of the songs are upbeat which was an unexpected bonus, and Julie varies things nicely with a few instrumental tunes where she plays whistles and small pipes. The arrangements are aided by the high quality of session players like John Doyle (guitar) and Iain McDonald (flute and pipes) in addition to John McCusker's fiddle and cittern playing.

Fowlis sings all her songs in Scots Gaelic but translations and info on each song is provided in the notes. The last track (which translates as "In Praise of Uist") was written by a neighbour (they must be all gifted up there!) is sung unaccompanied and is a beautiful song. There are a variety of moods but overall this is extremely optimistic music easily up to the standards of the above-mentioned TV series. I recommend this enthusiastically and the only reason it's not getting 5 stars is because her next two releases even surpass this one ! Fowlis is a major artist and is well worthy of a listen.

I have already acquired all of her other albums and this is her first one. Perhaps, my favourite is still her one called "Uam" (from me), but this is very good and well illustrates both her marvellous singing quality and and also her instrumental skills. I have seen her perform live on a number of occasions and have also been able to have a chat with her. She came across as a very pleasant and unassuming girl and deserves all the considerable acclaim she has received, despite almost always singing in a language which is spoken by a comparatively small number of people and certainly not by me!

Well worth purchasing this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Joy and Soulful Melancholy Unbounded 21 Jan 2011
By Lady Fancifull TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Julie Fowlis' mesmerising combination of a voice as pure and crystal as a mountain stream, boundless musical vitality and a band of equally talented and impassioned musicians will forcefully seduce you into love of Gaelic song. This Queen of the Western Isles conveys her passionate love of her traditional music, singing in her native tongue. This adds to the charm and intensity of the music - no need to know that (perhaps) in translation the lyrics may be less than gorgeous (or of course, they may be pure poetry - us non-Gael speakers will never know)

And............if you fall for this gorgeous music and want to hear Julie and the musicians live, well rest assured they are no studio bound geniuses, falling apart on the live stage - far from it, the experience of a live concert exceeds the recordings a hundred fold. She does seem to tour quite regularly, and if you run juliefowlis followed by a dot and a com you will find her website with tour dates. Me, I'm definitely booking her next live event. See you there.
