Bio

WHɎTE is a collaboration between electronic composer and musician, Ross Whyte and Gaelic singer-songwriter, Alasdair Whyte.  

 

The collaboration began as a commission by the organisation Ceòl 's Craic to bring together artists from the fields of electronic and traditional music for a live performance.  Taking inspiration from Alasdair’s research interest in 17th- and 18th- century Gaelic song and poetry, the duo began working on new ambient electronic arrangements of several rarely-heard songs as well as original compositions.  Their music has drawn comparisons with Sigur Rós and Martyn Bennett..

 

Following several successful live performances throughout Scotland and radio play on BBC Radio Scotland’s ‘Travelling Folk’, WHɎTE’s debut release was recorded in the late summer of this year at the University of Aberdeen and in a cave beneath Dunnottar Castle. 

The success of the Ceòl 's Craic event was followed with subsequent performances, including a slot at the Scottish Storytelling Centre for TradFest, Edinburgh.  This led to an excerpt of that performance being aired on BBC Radio Scotland’s ‘Travelling Folk’ on 15 May 2016.

WHɎTE's debut album, Fairich, was released on 21 October 2016.
