Christine Primrose - 'S Tu Nam Chuimhne

Select from currently available formats:
Released in 1987, this is the second album from the great Gaelic singer Christine Primrose. It was welcomed by her many admirers and, equally importantly, it introduced many more to the living tradition of the Scottish Gael. She endows these songs with a strength and magnificence that communicates at once even if you dont understand a word of Gaelic.

'S Tu Nam Chuimhne ('...and you on my mind') features both unaccompanied and accompanied songs featuring fiddle, harp, saxophone, trumpet, keyboards, whistles, small pipes, with contributions from artists including Alison Kinnaird, Brian McNeill, Duncan MacGillivray, Dick Lee, Alan Reid and Dougie Pincock.

"This is as good an introduction to the living tradition of Scottish Gaelic song as any, the adventurousness of the recording meriting the wider recognition outside the Gaelic heartland that it will surely get."

" ... sung with such power and simplicity that they transcend both prejudice and language ... a beautifully unhappy record"
