WHɎTE is a collaboration between electronic composer and musician, Ross Whyte (Aberdeenshire) and Gaelic singer-songwriter, Alasdair Whyte (Isle of Mull). Fairich, the duo’s debut album, features new ambient electronic arrangements of 17th and 18th-century Gaelic songs and original compositions. Their music has drawn comparisons with Sigur Rós and Martyn Bennett.
