Scottish music

“This CD is a masterclass of the power of beautiful music, arranged and composed by great musicians.”

Celtic meets classical in this exquisite fusion of the modern and the traditional. ‘Ten Islands’ evokes the landscapes of Scotland and includes some of the finest Scottish tunes from Burns to Jim Mclean. Completely new are the three pieces written by that master of Celtic mandolin, Nigel Gatherer.

Essentially, this is a superb set, with the very best of international musicians and a haunting vocalist showing what can be done with mandolin, guitar, double bass, percussion, voice and vision. The style ranges from Steeleye Span to Clannad. This second CD from Jochen Roß & Jens-Uwe Popp is a masterclass of the power of beautiful music, arranged and composed by great musicians. Their first release was ‘Zeitpunkte’ which proved to be very popular.

If all you can buy in these hard times is a little of the very finest music, this is the one for you. Go on, treat yourself!

To purchase, send a cheque for £14 payable to Barbara Pommerenke (yes, without the hyphenated ‘Steel’) to Barbara Pommerenke-Steel, 1 Fraser Crescent, Hamilton ML3 8LG
