“Even with MacColl’s own compositions, one did not have to scratch too far to find some Gaeltachd influences with MacColl one fiddler who owes a clear debt to the Highland piping traditions as much as her own instrument.” INVERNESS COURIER


Product Description

“The opening medley swiftly established many key hallmarks of MacColl’s playing: its wealth of dynamic variety and colour, the fluid agility and full-bodied weight of her bowing, her authoritative balance of fire and lyricism, vivacity and elegance.” THE SCOTSMAN

 A musical depiction of the life and prophecies of Coinneach Odhar, the Brahan Seer, a 17th Century prophet who spent much of his life in Easter Ross lies at the nucleus of  ‘The Seer’. Commissioned by Fèis Rois and performed for the first time at Celtic Connections in Jan 2017, it was released later in the year by MacColl, one of Scotland’s most expressive fiddle players.

Originally from the Black Isle, she was immersed in the rich culture of the Highlands from a young age, learning her traditional music through the Feisean movement in Ross-Shire.  She continues to be inspired by old music from her home area, those tunes forming much of her repertoire.

Lauren currently performs with many regular projects: with chamber-folk quartet RANT, on viola and fiddle with Salt House , in the Rachel Newton Band and in a duo with flautist Calum Stewart. She appears regularly as a session musician on recordings by such artists as Blue Rose Code, Siobhan Miller, Ewan Maclennan and as part of RANT recorded strings for Julie Fowlis’ latest album “Gach Sgeul”.
