Stirling at 90

(Written after the review of the Carlingwark Collection)

Equally strong is Nicol McLaren and the Glencraig’s new CD. Although entitled ‘Stirling at 90’ this CD contains all the music for Stirling Branch’s Bannockburn 700 book, plus five other dances (instructions for which are included on the CD leaflet and indicated with an asterisk above), which were added for the 90th Anniversary of the Stirling Branch. The book was launched in the summer and comprises 11 previously unpublished dances with a connection to Stirling.
Nicol McLaren has a six-piece band including Isobelle Hodgson, another pianist whose creative contribution keeps you interested in listening throughout. There is a full sound in quite a resonant acoustic.
Original tunes, as with the Carlingwark book, include traditional, well-known, modern and freshly composed, including four of Nicol’s own. The sets are nicely constructed, with Nicol contributing a number of other tunes, and sequences of tunes by Robert Mackintosh, and Michael Philip (for whose band Nicol plays second accordion). The reels come across particularly well, including Argyll’s Farewell to Stirling, with Mrs MacPherson of Inveran as the lead tune (the first two turns) and other pipe tunes to follow. There is also a beautiful set for Mrs Milne of Kinneff, widely popular and included in the RSCDS 75th Anniversary leaflet.
