The Celtic Music Radio Album of the Week commencing Saturday 23 March is the new CD from Donald Black called Dreams & Dances.
Donald talks to Danny Matheson about this long awaited album and Donald”s career on Saturday 23 March at 12noon and 12 midnight and on Monday 25 March at 6.00pm plus Catch Up anytime.
Dreams & Dances is an exciting Creative Scotland/Macmeanmna Recordings project, produced by Allan Henderson, is considerably varied, containing 16 tracks of Celtic moods and tempos, and, as the title implies, ranging from the slow powerful, poignant pieces through to the “up tempo”.
The material is typically mostly Scottish, Highland and Gaelic in essence, ranging from the very traditional through to the newly penned. Two lovely Canadian slow airs are included plus a couple of tunes written by Donald himself.
Donald is joined by two very impressive young Highland musicians on most of the tracks: Ross Wilson (keyboard, double bass and accordion) and Allan Nairn (acoustic and electric guitars, mandolin and drums). Also guesting on the album are Allan Henderson
(fiddle), Harvey Leckie (keyboard) and Trish Strain (cello).
