Kathleen MacInnes was born and brought up on South Uist, Western Isles, in a Gaelic-speaking home, and has enjoyed a career in television and the theatre as an actress, presenter and singer.
This is her debut album and also features some wonderful session musicians, including Ross Martin (guitar), Iain MacDonald (whistles and pipes), Marc Duff (bouzouki), Donald Shaw (keyboards and accordion), James MacKintosh (percussion), Neil Johnstone (cello) and John McCusker (fiddle).
Additional vocals are provided by Cathy-Ann MacPhee, Julie Fowlis and Karen Matheson.
The blending of all these talents and capturing of Kathleen’s beautiful voice has resulted in a very fine Gaelic song album.
Kathleen has been a regular guest on music programmes such as MacTV’s Bard Nan Orain, the award-winning BBC series Aig Cridhe Ar Ciuil, and Mike Alexander’s Columba Sessions, where she sang alongside leading Scottish and Irish singers and musicians. Kathleen also took part in the concert Flower Of The West, a tribute to Runrig brothers Calum and Ruaraidh MacDonald, and with Blas, as a support act to Van Morrison.
Kathleen’s various projects on television have included being presenter of Tacsi, a Scottish BAFTA award-winning television show of Gaelic and Celtic arts and culture * a part in the Gaelic soap Machair * parts on BBC comedy shows such as Ran Dan and PC Alasdair Stewart * the film Interrogation Of A Highland Lass * children’s TV programmes, and regular voice-overs for BBC animations.
