Invisible from land and seaInvisible from land and sea Ref: A0388
Strange Rainbow
Catriona McKay harp & Alistair MacDonald laptop/live electronics take the sound, language and tradition of the Scottish harp by the scruff of the neck and give them a good shake with a laptop. Catriona's passion for tradition is fused with new ways of playing the harp and Alistair's electro acoustic explorations reveal new hybrid worlds of human and environmental sound.

Strange Rainbow
Scotland's most exciting and innovative traditional style harpist Catriona McKay was named Instrumentalist of the Year at the Traditional Music Awards in 2007. She has worked notably with Shetland Fiddler Chris Stout and with Olov Johansson who is a virtuoso player of the Swedish Nyckelharpa. However her most adventurous musical collaboration to date is with the Scottish electronic-music wizard Alistair MacDonald. The name of their current project as well as their duo is Strange Rainbow and they have just released a new CD which they call skimmerin'. Skimmerin' is a Scots word listed in Chambers's Scots Dictionary as having some eighteen different meanings. I take it that here, the sense is "shimmering or glittering". Alan Cooper 2010
