The Tall Ship.

Whilst the Tall Ship is recognised as good venue it should be noted that, for much of the time, it's an incredibly difficult place to get to (unless you have a helicopter).

Give yourselves plenty of time.

Review

by Norman Chalmers - a recognised authority on Gaelic song.

Another super album from the former holder of the Mari Mhor nan Oran Gaelic Song Fellowship for Highland Council. In this Year of Homecoming, this one looks at songs of exile and emigration. It's all arranged in a tasteful up-to-date way by piano and keyboard player Irwin Duguid. A non-native, learned Gaelic speaker, Mackenzie is now one of the most compelling of our contemporary Gaelic singers, and her partnership with Duguid continues to produce music of real stature, heard here in these powerful, moving traditional songs composed over the last few hundred years.

He gave it four stars.
