Musicians on album :- Gráinne Brady / Su-a Lee / Megan Henderson / Innes White / Andrew Waite /Steve Forman / Feargus Hetherington.
Originally from Co. Cavan in Ireland, Gráinne has been writing music for over 10 years and has steadily built a career at the heart of the Scottish traditional music scene as a well-respected musician and composer. She currently plays with MG Alba Scots Trad Awards nominees Top Floor Taivers, string group The Routes Quartet, and Gaeilge/Gàidhlig supergroup LAS.
Recorded in Spring 2018, The Road Across the Hills was tracked, mixed and produced by award-winning musician and composer Mike Vass, and features household names from across Scotland’s traditional and classical music scene: Su-a Lee, Megan Henderson, Innes White, Andrew Waite, Steve Forman and Feargus Hetherington.
Exploring themes of immigration and extreme poverty, Gráinne took inspiration from the work of Irish poet and writerPatrick MacGill – the music for the album acts as a soundtrack to Patrick MacGill’s ‘Children of the Dead End’.
