julie fowlis with bagad kemper

Here's a lively bit of music for the new year -- and music you'll not have heard everywhere, at that. Julie Fowlis, who sings in Scots Gaelic, offers a tradtional song from her home in Scotland's far northwest, and she's backed not by her usual two acoustic musicians, but by a really big backing band, the Breton ensemble Bagad Kemper. They were playing at the Royal Glasgow Concert Hall.
