The Celtic Music Radio CD Album of the Week from Saturday 22 October is from Man’s Ruin and is titled Health & Safety.
The band comprises five of Scotland’s leading cross-genre folk contemporaries: Hamish Napier, Innes Watson, James Lindsay, Scott Donald and Calum MacCrimmon.
Liz Clark talks to James Lindsay about the band and the new CD.
The lads have launched their new album and plan to make a significant splash towards the end of 2011 and into 2012 (while working on thier next album!). They bring a new sound in the form of the new funkalicious album ‘Health & Safety’.
Tight, funky, unique and dirty with a distinctly Scottish flavour where you can explore and break down the boundaries between folk and funk and making connections between electric and acoustic instrumentation plus bringing together the singing voice’s of all members, guitar, bouzouki, electric bass, drums, flute and bagpipes!
‘Health and Safety’ was engineered and produced by Barry ‘Spad’ Reid at La Chunky Studios in the Hidden Lane off Argyle Street, Glasgow.
Album of the Week, Saturday 12 noon and 12 midnight and Monday 6.00pm.
