The Cottars' CD of the Week

Forerunner by stars of the 2005 KC Irish Fest, The Cottars, has just completed its run as album-of-the-week on the daily Caithream Ciuil programme on BBC Radio nan Gaidheal in Scotland.

The Cottars, seen recently opening shows for the legendary Chieftains on a tour that concluded at the weekend, released their new CD Forerunner in January.

This stunning new CD, highlighted by Irish-based numbers such as Miss Casey Medley and Pat Works on the Railway, also has a Sinead Lohan number, and two wonderful Tom Waits tunes.

Hopefully, Forerunner - a self-declared coming-of-age CD - will finally put an end to the tiresome comments about how old The Cottars are, and just focus on the music.
