This product is currently unavailable

We’d like you to meet Sandy Wright, a longtime underground hero in his native Edinburgh, latterly championed by the likes of Eddi Reader, Kris Drever, Karine Polwart and folk/pop favorites Aberfeldy and last year nominated as Composer of The Year at the Scot’s Trad Music Awards. This two disc collection features a disc of recordings from Sandy Wright plus a disc of covers from mainstay Navigator Records artists like Kris Drever, Roddy Woomble, Chris Wood & Karine Polwart. Encompassing twelve years’ worth of material, THE SONGS OF SANDY WRIGHT spans the epic and the intimate, the outlandish and the everyday, the comical and the quietly scathing. Wright’s gritty, pawky, long-distilled genius resonates so widely that he can only usefully be likened to such freebooting legends as Tom Waits or Johnny Cash—but with a distinct Caledonian salting of Ivor Cutler and Michael Marra. As a chronicle of a life exceptionally well-told, THE SONGS OF SANDY WRIGHT is your introduction to a truly singular talent.
