The Celtic Music Radio CD Album of the Week commencing Saturday 15 October 2011 is the new release from Kevin Henderson called ‘Fin Da Laand Ageen’
This is a new CD album from Kevin recorded with Mattias Perez from Sweden who plays guitars and mandola.
Fin Da Laand Ageen is an old Shetland expression meaning to arrive back home.
Says Kevin: “I decided to make an album of purely traditional Shetland tunes as I am finding the older I get it’s the music I am going back to more and more. I was delighted to have Mattias on the CD and also to have his wife Nina on fiddle join us for a track.”
The Fin Da Laand Ageen CD is available from Kevin’s website at the shop section here.
