EIGHT


Review

Another Celtic roots pop and rock outfit, the Glengarry Bhoys resemble The Paperboys in many ways , with a touch of Celtic rocker John MacLean Allan. The four bhoys from Eastern Ontario's Glengarry County, a Highland Scots enclave in Canada, play a blend of original pop songs and fiery dance tunes of Irish, Scottish and French-Canadian origin. They stand the test in both camps.

Principal songwriter Graham Wright the only native Scot, from Ayrshire, rejects the term Celtic rock: We stay away from that label. We have the Glengarry sound, and it's a world folk sound with a bit of a rock feel, a bit of a contemporary feel and a traditional flair to it. I try not to be write my songs based around Celtic music. I write them, and then we bring in the instruments.

D'Arcy Furniss brings in the sparkling fiddle, and Ewan Brown whistles and Highland bagpipes, Ziggy forms the backline to form the band that prevents you from being still. - "In a Big Country" has been taken from Scottish rockers Big Country who had an almost folksy sound. The electric guitar is replaced here by the pipes.

Nine points out of ten!
