Ian Copeland joined Liz Clark to bring you Sketch’s new album ‘Highland Time’ released by Skye Records as this weeks album of the week. Released on the 24 th July 2015 Tune in from 12 noon and midnight this Saturday and 7pm on Monday
“Following on from their debut album Shed Life, Highland Time is the new release from techno-trad fusion group, Sketch. Cultivated by percussionist and programmer Iain Copeland, Sketch’s sound is rooted firmly in traditional music with branches that extend into the realm of modern dance beats.
Featuring a host of Scotland’s finest musical talent. With vocals from Gaelic singer Darren Maclean and a guest appearance by Maeve Mackinnon, the album truly showcases the vibrancy of Scotland’s traditional music scene.
Highland Time isn’t a collision of the old with the new – with traditional sounds of the fiddle and the pipes soaring above a subculture of electro bass and percussive loops – it is a bold statement of the here and the now.”
