Ályth has been touring with her own band for many years – sometimes as a trio or 4 piece but currently they are touring as 5 piece and this is the best line up yet. They recently played a gig in her home town of Stornoway. It was a welcome return and a fantastic week of music, song and sunshine. The band were in top form. Ályth has played with some of these musicans for many years now and loves it when they get together. Brian Mcalpine on keyboards, vocals and accordian, Ewen Vernal on Double bass and vocals, Noel Eccles on percussion and new to the group young Innes Watson on guitar, fiddle and vocals standing in for stalwart Jonny Hardie.
They recorded the gig with a view to releasing a ‘live’ album of the night. What better place to record it than at home! More news soon and keep an eye out for the band on the festival circuit this summer. Ályth has released two solo albums An Iomall on Vertical Records and People like me on Navigator.
