Black Houses and Spring Chickens

VirtualBlackhouse4Continuing the Hebridean “virtual reality” theme, it may be worth noting that “island voices” might sometimes be realised instrumentally – rather than purely through  the exercising of Adam’s Apple…

The Spring Chickens made a notable musical contribution to Island Voices at the 2011 multilingual midsummer party at Grogarry Lodge in South Uist. While the line-up may vary from time to time the core of the group remains, and can be seen and heard supporting many a local community cèilidh around Berneray and North Uist.

And here they are supplying some musical background for the Virtual St Kilda project, in this instance looking at the construction of a traditional blackhouse.
