owen sinclair : westward the light

Top Scottish guitarist Owen Sinclair was Norrie's guest on Monday morning talking about his band 'Westward the Light'  new album 'Flow Country'. Of all the hundreds of albums Caledon Media recieve some stand out more than others. This is one of those albums. Firstly the talent of all four players is obvious from the first track. Sumptious melodies and mood shifting tunes and time signatures yet not feeling overwhelming to the ear. In fact it is a real joy to […]

James Bauld

The fantastically talented musician James Bauld sent us his new album. When we heard it we were immediately impressed. Original compositions well crafted techincal playing and great layering of tracks yet still keeping the wooden flute prominent. Yes we said 'wooden flute' not a much used instrument as James told us not many woden flute makers are in Scotland. James prefered the tone and warmth of wood over metal and who could disagree. One of the many nice things about […]

Paul Plamondon

Paul St Pierre Plamondon has been the leader of the Parti Québécois since October 9, 2020. He joined Norrie on an International call prior to flying to Edinburgh. Paul's team contacted Caledon Radio for an interview which we were very humbled. Of course Norrie asked first of all how close were Quebec to independence?

Very popular debut many listeners want back on.   op

Graham was on air to tell us all about his new solo album although he had a few illustrious musicians to help out. What is so glaringly obvious is how  the amazing clear sound of Grahams fiddle has been caught by the engineer. It cuts across other instruments including a brass outfit which adds amazing colour to the tunes.  “I have enjoyed the use of brass in arrangements of traditional music, having grown up listening to The Unusual Suspects and […]

Iona Fyfe

Iona Fyfe was on with Norrie Hunter to talk about her new release Lady Finella. This historical story  that Iona has brought to life is out now and what a story and musical triumph it is. Iona is a champion of her North East heritage and even in her voice you can detect the Huntly quine.  The discussion moved on to mysoginistic treatment and disturbing abuse that is thrown at Iona. It really does sadden me as a man the […]
