Traditional Irish Music
BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician 2014 Robyn Stapleton launches her debut album at this year’s TradFest in Edinburgh on Tuesday 5th May. She will be joined by three of Scotland’s finest folk musicians: Kristan Harvey (fiddle) and Alistair Paterson (keys), and Aaron Jones (guitar & bouzouki).
Robyn will be sharing the songs from her new album, ‘Fickle Fortune’, which features songs of Robyn’s Scottish and Irish heritage, in the Scots, English and Gaelic language. From lively and spirited arrangements to sensitively accompanied ballads and unaccompanied laments, Fickle Fortune captures the range, depth and beauty of the tradition.
The concert will include the song ‘Bonnie Woodhall’, which Robyn performed at Proms in the Park with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and ‘Jock Hawk’s Adventures in Glasgow’, a rousing traditional song that helped to win her the title of Young Traditional Musician. Also featured on the album is traditional song ‘What a Voice’, which was inspired by Martyn Bennett’s arrangement on his album, Grit and ‘Bruach Na Carriage Báine’, which recently featured in BBC Alba television series,Taghadh bho na Trads.
