Para Handy The Highland Voyage

This listing is from a previous year.  Search for current listings.

A musical take on the classic tales of Para Handy from Allan MacDonald (pipes, accordion, vocals), Iain MacLeod (mandolin, vocals) and Russell Hunter (piano, vocals).

The Highland Voyage of Para Handy and the puffer crew is a development of the original recordings of 1963, commemorating a voyage from Glasgow to Skye. The songs resound in Gaelic modalities but are delivered as parodies of the images created of the Gaels from outwith their own culture. What results is a comedic tongue-in-ear romp by three troubadours of this cross-culture: Iain MacLeod, Russell Hunter and Allan MacDonald, who add their own diverse musical talents to put the icing on the black pudding.
