Aonghas Grant - The Hills of Glengarry
An excellent new recording from Aonghas Grant (also known as Angus Grant Senior, distinguished from his son of the same name who is the fiddle player with Shoogenifty, and as The Left handed Fiddler – which should be self explanatory). This recording consists of a mixtuire of traditional tunes and of his own compositions. He is supported by Ross Martin (guitar), Christine Hanson (cello), Paul Connelly, concertina, and Angus R Grant (fidlde).
I was fortunate to see Angus Grant and friends play in a small hall on the north of Skye last year. The vigour of his playing is not impaired by his age and he is an inspiration. His students, who include some of the best known fiddlers of the current generation, wear the honorific red tassle from the scroll of their fiddles
