  • Description

    Scottish singer and harpist from BBC2 Folk Award nominated band The Shee and The Emily Portman Trio. Features guest musicians Kris Drever and Mattie Foulds. Rachel Newton, singer and harpist with BBC 2 Folk Award nominated The Shee and The Emily Portman Trio, has produced her debut solo album, 'The Shadow Side' on Shee Records. The album is comprised of mainly traditional songs in both English and Gaelic and also of Rachel's own instrumental compositions. 'The Shadow Side' showcases both the acoustic and the electric harp and Rachel's unique way of using them both to accompany songs and work together in an instrumental setting on her compositions. Rachel plays fiddle and harmonium to add to the song accompaniment and the album also features guest musicians Kris Drever on vocals, guitar and mandolin (including a duet performance of the trad song 'Green Willow') and Mattie Foulds on percussion.
