Mick West Trio
“Mick West is a powerhouse of traditional song, with a catalogue of highly acclaimed recordings to his name. His latest five star offering, A Scots Chorus, released in 2013 and produced by Stewart Hardy, has been cited as “an absolute triumph” (R2), whilst his 2010 recording, Snark O’ Snaw, received the same top rating from Scotland on Sunday.
Mick has one of Scotland’s most distinctive voices, and, in his trio, his rich, warm and expressive singing is complimented on guitar and fiddle by the highly creative playing of Frank McLaughlin and Stewart Hardy. The trio has a long standing musical kinship which shines through their arrangements, and makes for a joyous and inspiring performance.”
“One of Scotland’s most lyrical folksong exponents” Scotland on Sunday.
“West is a wonderful singer with a big, rich, warm expressive voice – in approach and stature somewhat of a Scottish Christy Moore” The List.
A Scots Chorus brings together the esteemed Mick West as singer and interpreter of traditional Scottish songs and a capella group Muldoon’s Picnic. Together, they aim to inspire fellow singers with their hearty and beautifully arranged chorus songs. Released in 2012 on Claytara Records produced by Stewart Hardy.
