Sgiath Airgid (Mary Smith)

This is a wonderful collection of songs gleaned mainly from Mairi Nic a' Ghobhainn's (Mary Smith) own home region of Ness on the Island of Lewis. Several of the songs will be familiar to those who listen to music of this genre, but Mary Smith imbues them with something special - it's as if one was hearing them as they would have sounded in centuries past. A long overdue album from one of Gaeldom's best singers. "‘Sgiath Airgid’, her first CD, is long overdue and eagerly awaited.
