This review is from: Farrar (Audio CD)
For the lover of Celtic music, "Farrar" will be high up in the list of truly stunning albums of 2008.
Look at the album artwork, and you know what you're in for...a wonderfully "moody" (in the best sense of the word) record containing simple, yet incredibly powerful tunes from the Highlands of Scotland. There are a number of self-penned melodies too, such as the haunting "Hill of the High Byre" (magical - listen to it in the car and turn up the volume as much as possible!!) or the enchanting "Farley Bridge".
So for anyone who doesn't know, or anyone who hasn't been convinced in the past - Duncan Chisholm, founder member of Celtic Rock veterans Wolfstone - is a truly gifted man. "Farrar" has recently won him "Album of the Year 2008" at the Scots Trad Music Awards in Glasgow, and is recognition well deserved for one of the finest musicians of this country...
