Calum Stewart & Heikki Bourgault (Scotland - Bretagne 2011) @320

A leading instrumentalist in Contemporary Traditional, British Isles, European
and World music, Calum Stewart is establishing a unique style along his way,
the sound of his Wooden Flute being fundamental to this.
Coming from a new generation of Breton musicians, Heikki Bourgault's
traditional yet modern, unique interpretations, push the limits of the open
tuned guitar.
Originally from the North of Scotland and brought up with the traditional
music of his native Morayshire, Calum Stewart has a developed a distinctive
contemporary-traditional voice. Through collaborations with a vast array of
musicians from many different genres, in the UK and Internationally,
Calum has absorbed many different influences on his musical journey.
Formed through an excisting musical friendship, Calum Stewart
and Heikki Bougault began their musical journey together in 2008.
Rooted in Celtic music of the British Isles, Calum was brought up among
the strong musical traditions of his native Scotland. Starting on the penny
whistle at a young age, Calum then moved onto the Wooden Flute.
Whilst being dedicated to the traditional music of his home land,
Calum is constantly searching for the voice that goes beyond
borders and melodies which are not geographically cemented.
Coming from a new generation of guitarists, Heikki embraces the strong tradition
of Breton musicians, whilst pushing the boundaries of the open-tuned guitar.
His knowledge of Fest Noz dance, both as dancer and musician, nourishes his composition in
the Breton style, whilst giving him a solid base to explore new ground.
This urge to look beyond borders, pushing the limits,
whilst respecting traditions is what brings Calum Stewart and Heikki Bourgault together :
With old instruments, a new sound is forged.

Deeply linked to the territory of four provinces and in particular Cegni, country of Giacomo and Ernesto Sala (the most important piffero players of the last century), Stefano Valla and Daniele Scurati are a direct continuation of the repertoire and the musical language of these musicians. Their activity is aimed at keeping alive the music and culture of oral tradition in this mountainous area and to promote the dissemination through festivals, concerts, workshops and conferences.
The duo is pursuing a dual parallel activity playing at parties in the countries of the Apennines, where the dance is still one of the key moments of aggregation (festivities , weddings, festivals, carnivals) and through exhibitions and musical events in Italy and abroad.
At the same time, thanks to their attention to contemporary cultural stimuli, and through experiences in other areas of music (jazz, classical, song writing) interpret their music expresses its vitality and their belonging to their own time.
Area of distribution of pipe, there is still strong ties to the musical repertoire, a repertoire of traditional dances before the assertion of ballroom dancing, are part of it: giga, alessandrina, monferrina,piana, povera donna, the latter with ritual connotations and symbolic details.

Capercaillie - At The Heart Of It All (2013 Scotland) @320

The Scottish folk scene is booming, and Capercaillie can take much of the credit. For the past 30 years they have revived and reworked Gaelic traditional music, while introducing new songs and exploring new musical settings. It has been a bold, sometimes uneven project that has seen them experimenting with synthesisers and programmed drums, but this anniversary set is a reminder of their exquisite acoustic work. It's dominated by the fine, pure vocals of Karen Matheson, who is equally at ease with rapid-fire "mouth music" as she is with an emotional Gaelic lament about a 17th-century drowning, and there is classy backing from a band that includes pianist Donald Shaw, of Celtic Connections fame, and master flautist and piper Michael McGoldrick. There are contributions from Scotland's new folk elite, including Julie Fowlis and members of Lau, and there's still an experimental edge, with a dash of jazzy brass added in.
