Mary Jane Lamond & Wendy MacIsaac - Brian Bourne - Atlantic Airwaves Saturday October 27, 2012
On this saturday's edition of Atlantic Airwaves, we'll have a feature on Mary Jane Lamond & Wendy MacIsaac and their new release 'Seinn', also a feature on Brian Bourne and his solo release 'Stick With Me'.
Both renowned solo artists -- MacIsaac, a fiddler, piano player and stepdancer from Creignish, and Lamond, a Gaelic singer and resident of Glendale -- the two have come together on a new album, their first collaborative recording effort.
For many years, MacIsaac was Lamond's faithful accompanist when she was touring her music and eventually that led to more of a musical partnership.
"I think it was maybe four years ago that Mary Jane started asking me to do more in her show and then that was going well and then she decided we should just split the shows," said MacIsaac.
A CD was the obvious next step for the two and "Seinn" is the result. Officially released last month, the two women behind the project have had a number of opportunities to showcase their new work at various festivals, including at home at the Celtic Colours International Festival.
