The musical genius of Julie Fowlis in Concert at ABC Glasgow January 2008
‘Hùg air a Bhonnaid Mhor’
From North Uist in Scotland’s Outer Hebrides, Julie Fowlis is probably the most successful artist ever to work with predominantly Scots Gaelic material and has some high-profile fans, including Björk, Ricky Gervais, and Phil Selway of Radiohead. While Runrig and Capercaillie had previously achieved breakthroughs of sorts with isolated outbreaks of Gaelic-language material, Fowlis threw caution to the wind and achieved surprising mainstream acceptance concentrating almost exclusively on the Gaelic tradition.
