Record of the Day…Island Folk (Niteworks Remix) by Mairearad Green


Listening to Marirearad Green‘s Summer Isles with your eyes closed can be a cheap way to take a vacation to Scotland.

The singer-songwriter does for the Scottish Highlands what Sigur Rós does for Iceland, or Justin Vernon for Wisconsin.

Green’s gorgeous Scottish folk music is steeped in the traditions and stories of the Summer Isles and Island Folk is the first track off the record. This version is remixed by Isle of Skye boundary pushers – Niteworks.

The album version is also below.

Domestic now, but spent early to late 80s playing drums in a hair metal band in Toronto. Since then I've lost the hair and have found new ways to scratch the rock and roll itch.
