'Homelands' came about through my love of my home in Lewis, Scotland and my love of my new home in Ireland where I moved several years ago. I see myself as an Islander as I come from the Hebrides, and I always will, but I also now love where I live in Ireland. It's a common thread. We are all travellers, emigrants, immigrants. This album touches on the themes of love and loss, home and emigration. **** R2 Magazine

Paddy Moloney – The Chieftains “From the heartland of Ireland to the shores of the Island of Lewis off the Scottish coast, Tríona Marshall and Ályth McCormack have created a beautiful blend of harp music and song. This brilliant recording encompassing a varied range of the Celtic traditions shows just how closely related our music and songs are and where it’s development and growth can lead. Triona and Alyth came together having toured with The Chieftains over the last few years and have now created a magical duet for all to enjoy”

**** The Irish Times “A delicious musical adventure”

Alyth’s debut solo album. ‘An Iomall’ is a deeply personal recording. An Iomall means ‘The Edge’, and the music reflects the weather-buffeted, exposed landscape of the Isle of Lewis, where Alyth was raised as a Gaelic speaker. One moment incredibly gentle, the next wild and passionate.

The Irish Edition Philadelphia “I am reminded of some of the work by the Kronos Quartet or the Beatles at their most adventurous…

Dirty Linen "McCormack is a great singer using traditional styling but adding on top of this a variety of vocal techniques to draw new emotions out of the music.”

Captain Simon Fraser's life in the 18th/19th century was dedicated to the collection of indigenous Highland Music of Jacobite Scotland. In 1816 he published a collection of 230 tunes from the Scottish Highlands and Islands, mostly derived from the singing of his father and grandfather. However, he omitted publishing the Gaelic words. This CD joins the words and music in harmony. “This CD presents some of the most beautiful music heard on Scottish albums during the last years." folkworld.de
