Glenuig Festival CD

To celebrate ten years of the Glenuig Music Festival a recording was made of the 1992 Festival. The music released on the subsequent CD is a selection of the best from the Tenth Glenuig Music Festival. The choice of tracks is due as much to the quality of the original recordings as to the musical content. Tracks by the same artists and others appearing at the festival had to be omitted due to too much interference from dogs, generators or audiences noises - it was a truly live festival. Our thanks go to all those artists featured on the CD for their permission to use these recordings, and to all those who played at the Glenuig Music Festivals. Also to Nick Turner of Watercolour Music who produced the CD for us, and to Billy MacKail who sat through many many hours of sometimes poor quality recordings to find the gems we have on this CD.

  1. Iain MacDonald & Jim Sutherland (pipes & drum)
