The featured album was SIAN by SIAN  www.sian-music.com  Self-titled debut release from a trio of accomplished Scottish Gaelic singers, assisted by several other well-known musicians.  Most of the songs are by Scottish female composers and all the tracks are attractively performed and arranged.  Unfortunately, sleevenotes are nonexistent and the website only offers the Gaelic lyrics without translation or English introduction, which may detract slightly from the overall package for non-Gaelic speakers.  The following tracks were scattered through the program:

The featured album was BLAS by BLAS.  www.daviddoocey.com  This CD has stayed under my radar for a few years, sitting neglected in a stack of CDs waiting for another opportunity to make its way back onto the program.  I think it's been worth the wait.  The band is musically strong, guided by the American/Irish fiddler David Doocey, and this album offers reliably solid interpretations of some familiar material, as well as several more recent compositions.  The following tracks were scattered through the program:
