"Listening to Ailie Robertson play the harp is as close as I expect to come to hearing ‘heavenly music’. Her album ‘Little Lights’ is precisely what we’ve come to expect from a lady whose awe-inspiring touch on the Celtic harp or clàrsach, borders on the sublime. This album is an exquisite collection of Scottish, Irish, Quebecois and original tunes, mixing tradition and innovation to quite simply sweep through your soul with the touch of an enlivening balm that makes the worst of days a little better."

Traditional SpiritsTraditional Spirits Ref: A0425
Ailie Robertson
Award winning clarsach player Ailie Robertson explores whisky making and marries it with our rich culture of traditional music, creating a new composition that ‘paints’ the whisky industry in soundscapes, from barley in the fields to cask and glass. Joining Ailie to blend their sounds and instruments with the world of whisky are seven of Scotland’s finest musicians: Patsy Reid (fiddles), Adam Sutherland (fiddle), Fraser Fifield (whistles/saxophone), James Ross (piano), Mattie Foulds (percussion), Conrad Molleson (double bass), Tom Oakes (guitar).

First Things FirstFirst Things First Ref: A0330
Ailie Robertson
Shattering preconceptions about the fragility of her chosen instrument, Scottish debutante harpist Ailie Robertson basks in a heady excavation of the driving rhythms that lie dormant between the strings. Forget misty images of lovelorn maidens at lattice windows. Instead, step into a world where Robertson's harp jousts (alongside the energising confidence of fellow Scots harpist Catriona McKay) with percussion, bass, guitar and piano. Her opening salvo, The Exploding Bow, sets the tone for a funky excursion around a trio of contemporary jigs, the final one written by Robertson herself. Another of her original compositions, Good Spirits, is paired cannily with a reel, The Humours of Scariff. The tunes revel in the unpredictability of newfound company. Robertson's genius is in straddling the Irish and Scottish traditions with a fresh-faced and utterly bearable lightness of being. Siobhan Long - Irish Times review
