Julie Fowlis. Mar A Tha Mo Chridhe (As My Heart Is)
Macmeanmna. SKYECD 33. 2005
It is one of the best albums I have heard this year. Her voice is truly mind blowing.
Better than that
I’d say this is the best recording by any Scottish musician in the past 10 years, and also the best Scottish whistle playing I’ve yet heard recorded. Julie is very ably assisted by some excellent guest musicians , including Eamon Doorley and Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh of “Danu”. If you only ever buy 1 recording of Scottish music, make sure this is it.
Track 4, 4th tune should be
Rogha An Ghabha
Can anyone give me an idea of how to pronounce the album title? (I’m not a gaelic speaker.)
Somehow Julie Fowlis passed me by and I only discovered her today. What a voice.

I love this album! It has so many great songs and puirt-à-beul in it.
