Once Upon An Olive Branch
[MM02] - 9 in Stock
Maeve Mackinnon stands out as an exceptional young talent. With a repertoire spanning Gaelic and English-language material, both traditional and contemporary, she’s won acclaim equally for the eloquent emotional connection she forges with every song, communicated in a bewitchingly honeyed, husky yet vibrantly earthy voice, and for her music’s dynamic interplay of boldness and sensitivity. After winning major praise for her 2007 debut album Don’t Sing Love Songs – culminating in her winning Up and Coming Artist of the Year at the Scots Trad Music Awards, and a prestigious Classic Album show at Celtic Connections 2008 – she now releases her eagerly-awaited follow-up, Once Upon an Olive Branch, which also marks her first public foray into songwriting.
