“Asha” Guest Artist – Julie Fowlis

Julie Fowlis is a multi-award winning Gaelic singer who is deeply influenced by her early upbringing in the Outer Hebridean island of North Uist. With a career spanning ten years and four studio albums, her ‘crystalline’ and ‘intoxicating’ vocals have enchanted audiences around the world… She can be heard on Asha – track 9, singing her own composition “Though We Are Here Now” (Ged a tha sinn an seo an-dràsda)…

It was a pleasure having Julie and her husband/bandmate Éamon Doorley (Irish bouzouki) blend with AO on this piece…and when you hear the song, you’ll understand why she was nominated as ‘Folk Singer of the Year’ at the 2015 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, and ‘Best Artist’ at the Songlines World Music Awards 2015… Julie and Éamon bring genuine roots and authenticity to AO’s international family of renowned world music artists… You can have a listen to her wonderful contribution to Asha here!
