Elis Macfadyen is a well-known face around the folk clubs, bars and open mic venues in the Inverness area. He plays and sings a range of Scottish, Folk, Country and other music on guitar, both solo and in various band line-ups. With a growing catalogue of his own songs he is promoting his work with My Home in Argyll, his debut EP. Elis can be seen at Belladrum Festival on the Free-Range Folk stage on Saturday the 4th August 2018 Originally from Glencoe in Argyll, Elis penned the title track from this EP in tribute to his home county. On this song, Elis and multi-instrumentalist Marc Clement are joined by Michael J MacMillan on accordion. The Girl from the Rodeo is a country style song and was written by Elis for Aye2Aye, the Inverness country band. Elis sang it with them at Belladrum and at Looe music festivals in 2014. Too Young To Settle down is a more upbeat song about an irresponsible young man and his adventures in the American Midwest. She smiled for me is a love song and was inspired by a photo of Fiona, taken by Elis when they were on a cycling trip in Culbin Forest near Nairn. The music on this EP demonstrates the range of Elis’ song writing but also the skill of Marc Clement who recorded, produced, mixed and mastered the EP, showing his depth of musical understanding, skilful playing and studio expertise throughout the process. “It has always been my aim to write songs that others can sing, with this EP I asked Marc to produce the songs as he saw fit. Some of the songs are quite different to the version I sing acoustically, and I am very pleased with the way the material has been interpreted.”
