Talamh Beò CD


Scots Trad Award-winning album, celebrating the people and landscapes of Coigach and Assynt, commissioned by CCDC in 2020.

Categories: ,

Talamh Beò – ‘living land’ – was commissioned in 2020 by CCDC as part of the ‘Music and Tales of Coigach and Assynt’ project and features a quartet of composers, writers and musicians: Mary Ann Kennedy, Finlay Wells, Nick Turner and Donald MacLean. The album was inspired by the landscapes and people of Coigach and Assynt.

Making the album was not an easy task: site visits were impossible for the first few months due to pandemic lockdowns so the group got to know the communities through a successful and interesting series of online meetings. The result is a beautiful and highly imaginative collection of new songs and melodies. One of the songs – ‘Ceilidh Buan’ – is about Ali ‘Beag’ Macleod and is a moving tribute to this well-loved local musician and boatman.

We were delighted to receive a Scots Trad Award (‘Original Work of the Year’) for the album in December 2022.

The price includes postage and packing to UK addresses. Please email for a quote for deliveries overseas.
