Description

A few years ago, MIKE VASS and MAIREARAD GREEN decided to meet one day a month to play and write music together. This was the start of “A Day A Month” collaborations and they will be releasing their debut album at The Ceilidh Place on the 7 September as part of Blas Festival.

Despite both being well known composers in the Scottish Traditional music scene, this album includes only traditional melodies and not any of their own compositions. The music for the album was sourced from books such as The Gesto Collection of Highland Music, The Athole and Highland Collections and The Moidart Collection.

The pair recorded the album in a small Highland croft house in Achnahaird and they have enjoyed discovering such a wealth of great melodies to record and perform.



Introduced to the Scottish folk scene a mere few years ago, HANNAH RARITY'S spellbinding voice and warm, genuine stage manner have seen her become one of Scotland’s foremost young singers, performing with a number of varied and prestigious acts,including the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Phil Cunningham and Aly Bain, Blazin’ Fiddles and others. Hannah’s debut EP ‘Beginnings’, released in 2016, marks an exciting chapter in her already remarkable career. Since graduating from the RoyalConservatoire of Scotland with an honours degree in Scottish Music she has toured extensively with the renowned Irish-American traditional group ‘Cherish the Ladies’, appeared as a soloist on BBC Scotland’s Hogmanay Live 2016 and been featured on television projects for BBC Northern Ireland.

Hannah’s thoughtful interpretations of traditional material and sensitive, self-penned songs are skilfully backed by her band, featuring guitarist Innes White (John McCusker, Karen Matheson, Heidi Talbot), Conal McDonagh on whistles and pipes (Inyal, Duncan Chisholm) and Sally Simpson on strings (Strathspey and Surreal, and Markus Räsänen). Together they create intricate and fiery arrangements, which are as exciting as they are moving.
