Sradag Records SRM001, £11.99 ****

Dancer, actor, broadcaster, Gaelic activist, teacher, journalist and choral conductor – this talented, ambitious young woman from Connel, near Oban, has found time to record and release a first "solo" album of Gaelic songs.

Nearly all from the tradition, and instrumentally arranged with admirable skill, taste and restraint, they showcase her high, clear, expressive vocals over thoughtful piano/guitar/bass with guest strings and percussion in a richly rewarding album.
