Salsa Celtica on Tour March 2014
The duo tour with Kris has only just finished but I’m off on the road again, this time with Salsa Celtica, and we have a new album to bring to you – The Tall Islands.
See you all over England (not forgetting one in Scotland) over 15 days of March.
Here’s a little intro to the album from the Salsa Celtica website:
We are proud to the present The Tall Islands, our 5th studio album.
To write and rehearse the new material we played a short tour of the Scottish islands, including gigs on Skye, Mull and Lewis.
Right at the end of the tour a gig came in headlining the salsa carnival in Gran Canaria. Going from the cold waters and small village halls of Scotland to a huge open air gig in the Canaries somehow seemed to tie up the tour and reflect who we are as a band.
The time spent together, on the road and water, the places we visited and people we met seems to have resulted in a “rootsier” more folkloric sounding album. Part of this more folkloric sound is that for the first time we have worked on 4 new tracks developed from traditional Scottish Gaelic material, we are very pleased with the way they and all the tracks worked out.
It’s been a long wait but we think it’s been worth it, we hope you enjoy it!
