Music (folk, traditional)

Add to favourites


The debut showcase of Birichen coinciding with the release of Hush, the first material from this quirky duo. Leading you through traditional ballads and contemporary covers, it then teases the listener with a dram of modern Highland folk. Vocals from Catriona Sutherland and the endless talent of fiddler and guitarist Iain-Gordon MacFarlane strip everything back to basics. Birichen is the distil of a rich, albeit sometimes painful, Highland history. It is as it is, a fresh grain of Scotland at a very pivotal time. The last chord may fade, but it will never leave you.
