Marit & Rona
[WCMCD051] - 3 in Stock
The debut album from Marit Fält and Rona Wilkie on Watercolour Music melds tunes and songs from their Highland and Scandinavian to create a new music that's uplifting, daring and harmonious. 'Turas' explores the common ground between their Swedish and Gaelic backgrounds with a unique voice - playful, borderless - gliding through evocative, near-classical movements and elegant polskas to buoyant reels, via the virtuosity of Rona's fiddle and Marit's Nordic låtmandola. Winners on the same night 2012 of the coveted Danny Kyle Award at Glasgow's Celtic Connections Festival and BBC Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year, Marit and Rona have been quietly working away on this gorgeous debut on Watercolour's Stòras imprint, which supports innovation and creativity in new Gaelic music and writing. Joining them on several tracks are the bewitching percussion of Allan Òg MacDonald and the deliciously sweeping strings of the Cantilena Quartet - playing Marit and Rona's own arrangements. The album was produced by Nick and Mary Ann for Storas Watercolour.
