A fourth studio album from North Uist Gaelic singer Julie, with a host of top guest musicians from Scotland, Ireland and further afield.

Brought up on North Uist in Scotland's Outer Hebrides, Julie has been a proud standard bearer for Gaelic music and culture over the course of a solo career which has spanned over ten years.

This much anticipated album 'Gach sgeul' meaning 'Every story' is well worth the wait!

A superb album of Gaelic songs, mostly from Julie's North Uist, selected with care and enhanced with beautiful arrangements.

Includes a colour booklet with Gaelic words, English translation and background notes to the songs.

"Traditional songs, words and stories are what inspired the music this record contains. I am fortunate to come from a place where telling tales, sharing stories and singing songs are not only a national pastime, but rather signposts showing us where, and who, we have come from. They help shape our identity and give us a sense of beloning. They make us laugh, move us to tears, and give us moral guidance." Julie Fowlis.

"Julie Fowlis could be the first Scottish Gaelic crossover star in the making." (Daily Telegraph)
