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.
