As you listen to Eadarainn you will also get a sense of what a great character Rona Lightfoot is. Rona’s most immediate musical in influences were her mother Kate, who was one of the most remarkable singers and tradition bearers of her age and Eairdsidh Raghnaill, her father, a piper and seanachaidh of renown. Rona s family cherished and fostered Gaelic traditional arts and Eadarainn is a distillation of the cultural legacy which she inherited. A beautiful album quite unique in that Rona is a piper as well as a singer. Pipe tunes canntaireachd, traditional tunes andd a strong family tradition and inheritance from the lore of South Uist. This debut CD brims with testimony to her abundant talents.
Guest musicians: fiddle – Allan Henderson, clarsach – Deirdre Graham, accordionist - Carol-Anne MacKay and piper – Iain MacDonald .
