Just two years after their highly-praised debut record Selivke (Migratory Birds), Slovenian singer/ songwriting duo Katarina Juvančič & Dejan Lapanja have released a stunning new album: Hope’s Beautiful Daughters (Stray Cat Tunes, 2014). The 9 tracks focus on stories about women and were recorded in collaboration with 13 musicians and storytellers from Slovenia and Scotland.
This Slovenian-Scottish collaboration – the first of its kind – has been initiated by Katarina Juvančič & Dejan Lapanja. The pair teamed up with the prominent Scottish musicians and songwriters Karine Polwart, Paul Tasker (Doghouse Roses), Fiona Cuthill (Raintown, Rallion), Seylan Baxter (Tattie Jam) as well as some of the country’s finest storytellers (Lawrence Tulloch from Shetland, Tom Muir from Orkney and David Campbell from Edinburgh) to release the album’s ambitious content. Regular Slovenian collaborators Matija Krečič (fiddle), Klemen Krajc (bass), Gašper Peršl (drums), and the Salamandra Salamandra band also feature, cementing a true cultural exchange.

The music, with a basis in both folk and rock, is built on stories of women set to imaginative, rich and enthralling musical landscapes where fiddles meet roaring guitars, a Highland lass plays the ngoni and where thematically Rosa Luxemburg rubs shoulders with an Inuit woman. Emotionally intense, dramatic singing and extraordinary musicianship combined with the empowering nature of storytelling makes Hope’s Beautiful Daughters a unique listening experience.

This Glasgow leg of the album lanch tour will feature Katarina and Dejan joined by Fiona Cuthill, Seylan Baxter and Paul Tasker
