Billy Ross - Shore Street: Billy Ross was a founder member of the widely travelled folk band Ossian, formed in 1976. He was the main singer and playing guitar, dulcimer and whistle. This CD from 2000 was Billy's first solo album and consists traditional songs which he has always greatly admired. The album was produced by Ossian pal William Jackson (who also contributed backing vocals, whistle, harmonium, harp and piano/keyboard). They are joined by some of the best musicians on the Scottish scene - Tony McManus (guitars), Iain MacInnes (small pipes), Stuart Morison (fiddle), James MacKintosh (percussion), Kevin MacRae (cello), John Martin (fiddle) and Robin Williams (oboe). Mention must also be made of the wonderful backing vocals of Mae McKenna on three tracks.
|Title:||Shore Street, Billy Ross|
|Review:||One of these albums you keep coming back to. Nothing grates, you skip no tracks, you rediscover old delights and discover new ones. That warm, honest, melodious next-door voice tells it like it is, in Gaelic and Scots, and you listen.
And not over-produced either - he could be there, playing away in the corner, while the room falls still.
A great find.
