Taken from Julie’s fourth studio album, this hypnotic and mysterious song tells the tale of a young girls’ encounter with the ‘each-uisge’ or water-horse.
Featuring award winning Scottish ensemble RANT, with strings arranged by flautist and composer Tom Doorley.
Brought up on North Uist in Scotland’s Outer Hebrides, Fowlis has been a proud standard bearer for Gaelic music and culture over the course of a solo career which has spanned over ten years and three highly acclaimed studio albums:
‘Mar A Tha Mo Chridhe (As My Heart Is)’ (2005)
‘Cuilidh’ [pronounced ‘koo-lee’] (2007)
‘Uam’ [pronounced ‘oo-am’] (2009)
‘Gach Sgeul (Every Story)’ (2014)
This year sees the release of Julie’s much anticipated fourth studio album, ‘Gach sgeul / Every story’ – a mature offering of carefully selected Gaelic songs, with sensitive and lush arrangements from a host of brilliant musicians from Scotland, Ireland and further afield.
