Malinky: Last Leaves
The second album of this young group was already submitted by Alan MacGregor, so I need to fill in the gap. If my memory is correct, this band was discovered in the Edinburgh Folk Club several years ago. Through lots of gigs and concerts on bigger stages, they now become one of the most popular Scottish bands.
Mostly songs, but excellent instrumentations. And Karine Polwart is an exceptionally great singer.
Karine Polwart (vocals, guitar, houzouki)
Steven Byrne (vocals, guitar, cittern, mandolin, bouzouki)
Mark Dunlop (bodhran, whistle)
Kit Patterson (fiddle, guitar)
