Tairm

by WHɎTE

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    The hotly-anticipated second album from award-winning band WHɎTE, following the release of their “absorbing” debut album ‘Fairich’ in 2016 (fRoots).

    WHɎTE infuse Gaelic song – original and traditional – with the newest techniques in electronica.

    With an interpretation and direction described as being “important for Scottish music in general and Gaelic in particular” (Alun Woodward, Chemikal Underground Records), WHɎTE’s unique sound has been described as “achingly beautiful” (fRoots), “moody and alluring” (Songlines) and “wonderfully evocative” (Scots Whay Hae!).

    The duo comprises electronic composer, musician and Scottish Album of the Year-longlisted Ross Whyte (Aberdeenshire) and Gaelic singer, songwriter and twice-nominated Hands Up for Trad Gaelic Singer of the Year Alasdair C. Whyte (Isle of Mull).

    The album’s title, ‘Tairm’, is a Gaelic word which can be translated as ‘echo’ or ‘gathering summons’. ‘Tairm’ features a collection of original Gaelic songs, new arrangements of traditional Gaelic songs and instrumental works.

    The band represented Alba/Scotland with the first single from this second album, ‘Tairm’, at the Liet International 2018 XXL international new song competition in Friesland.

    ‘Cionran’, an original Gaelic song from the band’s debut album ‘Fairich’, received the 2017 Hands Up for Trad/Creative Scotland Nòs Ùr Songwriting Award.
