A word from Mary
One of the things I love about what I doat Celtic Music Radio is the opportunity to showcase up and coming artists on my show at www.celticmusicradio.net and tonights guest Darcy Dasilva is certainly that. Darcy has an incredibly beautiful voice and possesses every ingredient required to become a worldwide respected artist with a great future ahead of her. I am certainly rooting for her success and just know my listeners will love her . I first met her three years ago in Moniaiave when her Mum made me very welcome to her house for tea and over the weekend an all night music session . I saw a budding star in Darcy that weekend and she has worked hard at her music since that .

Darcy has formed her own band and one of the members is none other than my wee friend and talented artist in his own right Alisdair Ogilvy Alaisdair has already proved my prediction of his recognition on The Scottish Trad and Folk scene and I remember with fondness his debut on my show singing acapella and speaking of his respect for Rabbie Burns he certainly has the charm of the Late Bard and the looks and the type of guy any parent would be delighted to see their daughter bringing home for tea he has a very unique voice and after making it last year to The Young Trad music of the year finals on BBC 2 he has been nominated again this year . His collaberation with Darcy and her band and his collaberations now with many talented Scottish Musicians can only mean more recognition which in my opinion is well earned and deserved .
