Product description

Product Description

A Debut Album by Mhairi Hall Trio Capturing Scotland s music, energy and emotion on the piano It s not often that the boundaries of a genre and of an instrument are pushed so far in one record but, with her debut album Cairngorm, pianist Mhairi Hall has done just that. The intrinsic link between the music and the area s landscape is beautifully expressed to make an album that seems to transcend just music and become a body of work with a soul. With legendary world music producer Dónal Lunny on production duties, a man himself at the forefront of traditional Gaelic folk music for more than 30 years, the trio retreated to Crear in Argyll, which houses one of the finest Steinway pianos in the country. The surroundings breathed life into the record and are widely responsible for its rich sounding emotionally beauty. The trio, consisting of three of Scotland s most exceptional musicians, is fronted by Mhairi, who was raised in Aviemore. Her virtuosic piano playing is complimented by Fraser Stone on drum kit and percussion and Michael Bryan on guitar. On Friday 21st August they will transport a grand piano up Cairngorm Mountain, which lies near Aviemore in the central Highlands of Scotland, upon reaching the Ptarmigan venue at the top they will perform the music live to celebrate the launch of this special album. Both traditional material and tracks composed by Mhairi make up Cairngorm, as she explained, It was very important for us to try and capture a sense of the area through our music. Many of the melodies are hundreds of years old, and were written for places that lie unchanged today or old legends and people. We hope that we have created a sound which is respectful of this. The album launch is supported by the Cairngorms National Park Authority, CairnGorm Mountain and Cairngorm Brewery.

Review

Pushing the boundaries not only of the traditional folk/genre with this stunning debut, Hall also pushes the limits of the piano as an instrument to its limit, with striking results.
-- The Irish World, 12/01/10

Dynamic, exhilarating, insightful - it's a sin such music has taken so long to reach people's ears. So, please, let's have some more - ***** -- The Scotsman, 01/02/10

This truly mesmerising album is one I wholeheartedly recommend to those who prefer their music to be both relaxing and stupendous.
-- Maverick Magazine
