Multi award-winning Skye piper Brìghde Chaimbeul, acclaimed Scottish traditional musician and composer Ross Ainslie and Irish guitarist and drummer Steven Byrnes Haberlin have teamed up on the collaborative album LAS.
LAS was recorded live and consists of a mixture of original compositions, traditional Scottish songs, and tunes from Bulgaria, Spain and France. Ross was inspired to collaborate with Brìghde when he heard her performing at the Radio 2 Folk Awards and after teaming up with Steven found the three artists made a harmonious partnership.
The record includes standout tracks like the powerful majestic sounding Green Light Set, the cheery and light-hearted tune Dod’s and the dramatic and fast-paced Strathspeys and Reels.
Their album was recorded at Bannview Studios in Northern Ireland, and mixed and mastered in Glasgow at GloWorm Recordings, all by Andrea Gobbi. Every track was recorded live, with the musicians positioned close to one another to give a session-like experience.
