Mackenzie is a Gaelic vocal group of sisters Eilidh, Gillian and Fiona Mackenzie, from the village of Gress on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides. They have been involved in the world of Gaelic music and song since childhood.

This is their second album, entitled Fama Clamosa (Latin for Whispering Rumours), and includes traditional songs alongside their own compositions, with some tracks a cappella and some accompanied by guest musicians including Calum Malcolm (piano, keyboards), James Mackintosh (percussion), William Jackson (whistles, harps), Mairi Campbell (fiddle, viola) and Brian O'hEadhra (guitar).

All three sisters are well-known in their own right. Eilidh is a Mod Gold Medallist, and, as well as recording a solo album, was a member of the group Mac-talla which performed and recorded Gaelic song and instrumental music. Gillian is also a Mod Gold Medallist, and has appeared, singing solo, on television programmes such as Tacsi. Fiona is a former member of Seelyhoo and Anam.

"Mackenzie is the most beautiful act of Gaelic song to be found on the folk music scene... Three sisters with bittersweet voices, creating a heavenlike soundsphere - absolutely stunning!" (FolkWorld)
