Last chance to purchase Friochd at a reduced price.
We wanted to remind you that we are in the final stretch and that up until Thursday, May 17th at midnight will be your last opportunity to purchase the digital download of Friochd, our latest album for only $6.00C at:
Some huge news: Friochd, our second album features 11 new songs and we can't wait to share it with you. The album is being mastered and will first be released to fans on our mailing list at a very special price. We can't wait for you to hear our rockin' new tracks.
First up will be our version of the well known Skye Boat Song done up in full Fiùran style and featuring a searing guitar solo by Pedro Remiz of Portuguese metal band The Autist. This will be released in less than two weeks (April 15th), with the entire album to follow shortly after.
Here's a wee tease from Friochd, Fiùran's second studio album :-)
This is our take on a wee traditional Scottish Gàidhlig song entitled Chì mi na mòrbheanna (The Mist Covered Mountains of Home) spun up Fiùran style. We aren't the first to record this wonderful tune, nor will be the last.
As usual, crank up the volume on your favourite sound system and lose yourself for a moment to another place.
Enjoy :-) And, wishing peace and happiness to all.
Okay, we were thinking that one probably isn't enough...so here's tease #2 from Friochd, Fiùran's second studio album :-) ...and there's much much more to come.
This is our take on an ancient melody and the traditional Scottish Gàidhlig song entitled Tha mi sgith (I am tired), borrowed from an ancient melody from the Scottish Hebrides, and known to pipers as Cutting Bracken. It is a traditional Scottish Gàidhlig song which carries with it many possible tales. One possibility is that the song is that is sung by a fairy who sees a beautiful girl while cutting bracken (ferns). They fell madly in love, but as in many complex romantic tragedies, when her family found out who their daughter was smitten with, they locked her away to prevent the relationship from continuing. The fairy sings with pain and laments his loss.
