  4. Scottish singer-songwriter Ewan MvLennan's third Fellside album is a musical tour de forceRead the original story w/Photo

    Sep 13, 2014 | Messenger Newspapers

    Ewan McLennan's rousing rendition of his own 'Whistling the Esperanza' was one of the highlights of BBC4's excellent 'Transatlantic Sessions' series, and the Scottish singer-songwriter's third Fellside album is another musical tour de force, showcasing a finely judged assortment of self-penned songs and haunting traditional material. 'A Beggar' and the Chartist hymn, 'Song of the Lower Classes' are particularly memorable efforts, and Ewan also invests compelling ditties such as 'Prince Robert' and 'Granite Cage' with a power and passion which puts me in mind of the great Dick Gaughan in his pomp, and you can't really ask for a higher recommendation than that.
