Kathleen MacInnes with amiina at Celtic Connections 2019
What an impressive concert. Kathleen is one of Scotland’s foremost Gaelic singers with her broad range and husky tones. To begin her concert she sang Gaelic songs, after which she was joined by the Icelandic group amiina; the band were the string section of Icelandic avant rock sound sculptors Sigur Ros.
amiina‘s music was subtle and sublime and beautifully complemented Kathleen;s soothing voice. What a unique combination. Their music produced haunting, atmospheric soundscapes. They performed a poem by Alexander MacColl Smith, ‘The Waves that Bear the Saints’. amiina also performed some of their own tracks and showcased their diversity and richness of sound.
Kathleen is from south Uist and won Gaelic singer 2006, (Scots Trad music awards). A high quality and thoroughly enjoyable concert.
They were supported by the excellent four part harmonies of Irish singers Landis.
