The Tannahill Weavers - Alchemy
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 22/02/2008 11:20:38
Still going strong and soon to be celebrating thirty years together, The Tannahil Weavers are still turning out the goods! Alchemy follows the band's usual high standard of performance and for that, the folk scene should remain eternally grateful. I remember first seeing the band at one of the early Bracknell Folk Festivals and was more than impressed with their arrangements of standard and not so standard Scottish infused songs. Even today their sound hasn't changed a great deal but it remains eternally fresh to the already converted or those just embarking on their first Celtic experience. A fine example in arranging is the silky smooth introduction to "The Gallant Shearers" with its delicate guitar, flute and long-drawn bowing notes on fiddle. You see the art is in grabbing the listener's attention from the outset, something the band members (Roy Gullane, John Martin, Duncan J Nicholson, Phil Smillie and Les Wilson) are only too aware of. As long as the band keep turning out recordings of this quality there's no reason they shouldn't be able to continue as they are even without the aid of a lottery win. I suppose the band should be called elder statesmen by now but they would certainly put a lot of younger whippersnappers I know to shame.
