SKYE13	Donnie Murdo MacLeod - Sguab Is Dloth	MC	7.49
Donnie, originally from Stornoway, on the Isle of Lewis, is one of the
leading traditional Gaelic singers of his generation.  He won the National
Mod Traditional Gold Medal in 1996, which brought his singing to a wider
audience.  But even before that he was regarded as a singer of great depth,
with an extraordinary capacity for faithfully learning songs from the Gaelic
tradition, many of which were, and are, ignored by other ingers. This is his
first album, and it contains some of the many songs Donnie has learned from
the great tradition bearers of the past generation, for whom he has the
utmost respect and admiration.
