Mairearad Green 'Summer Isles'

Mairearad Green 'Summer Isles'

with Hector MacInnes and Mike Vass.

Having grown up in the Scottish Highlands, The Summer Isles are deeply rooted in Mairearad’s composition. As a result, Mairearad has produced a beautiful new solo album, Summer Isles, a seamless and exciting progression from her previous work.

2014 saw Mairearad spend many weeks researching stories from the islands; as she located publications and poetry to help set the direction for Summer Isles. The album is an exquisite collection of acoustic, folk and cinematic vignettes that create an overwhelming listening experience. Each track tells a story of the islands’ history, embracing a contrasting emotion from track to track.
