HECLA – Smallpipes, Fiddle, & Gaelic Song (KRS001)

HeclaI note on the “Thanks to” section on the cover of this CD that the ‘UHI Student Development Fund’ get first credit. I have no other detail to go on other than that the musicians are Ilona Kennedy (Fiddle),  Ailis Sutherland (Smallpipes/Whistle/Backing Vocals) and Kaitlin Ross (Guitar/Vocals)

I suspect that this CD was an exercise to give these young musicians the experience of working in a studio and having the thrill of releasing a CD.

There is absolutely no doubt that they are all very talented but they could have possibly been given some instruction on how to create the personality and drive necessary to create a CD by some of the other top quality performers credited on the cover.

This is a “nice” CD and these musicians will learn and benefit from having worked on it. It will certainly do them no harm and well done to them. I enjoyed it.
