The Story So Far - On a cold night in January 2010, a group of four musicians from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland gathered to sound check for their first gig. Colin Greeves had recruited childhood friend Eddie Seaman, they were joined by Ainsley Hamill and Alistair Iain Paterson to play Partick Folk Club’s annual Burns Supper. After the performance, the young group decided that they wanted to work together as a band. They invited Eilidh Firth to join the band for their first tour of Scotland in the summer of 2011, and with this exciting combination of musicians they have wowed audiences from Portmahomack to Washington DC. At Celtic Connections 2012 they were presented with a prestigious Danny Kyle Open Stage award. Barluath were delighted to be given the opportunity by John Wallace, Principal of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (formerly the RSAMD), to record their debut album on the recently formed alliance with the Nimbus record label. You hold the result of this exciting project in your hands. It’s been a lot of hard work but at the same time great fun and a truly memorable experience. We hope you enjoy listening to it as much we’ve enjoyed making it! Barluath, August 2012

“This is the debut disc of the folk group Barluath, alumni of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. A promising and well-received start has been made to their career at various concerts across the globe. They are equipped with the expected instrumental array: fiddle, bagpipe (of various kinds - Highland and Border), smallpipes, whistles, but also Bouzouki, and on some tracks clarinet, synth glockenspiel and Bódhran. There’s rhythm accompaniment too, of guitar and electric bass, though it’s varied throughout the ten tracks so things don’t fall into an expected groove… An enjoyable first-ever release.” Jonathan Woolf,
