This fourth album from Scottish Gaelic singer and t Julie Fowlis finds her riding the crest of a wave that peaked when she was chosen to sing the lead song in Disney-Pixar's blockbuster animated film Brave, thrusting her out of the folk music ghetto and onto the world stage. The success doesn't seem to have gone to her head, however.

Fowlis's fourth studio album, Gach Sgeul (Every Story), was released on 24 February 2014. Her fifth, Alterum, came out 27 October 2017. All of Fowlis's albums including Dual have been released on the Machair Records label which is operated by Fowlis and her husband Éamon Doorley as an outlet for their music. Machair "is a Gaelic word which describes rich and fertile low-lying land. Almost half of all Scottish machair occurs in the Outer Hebrides and it is one of the rarest habitat types in Europe

This fourth studio album returns to her Hebridean home of North Uist (pop 1,254), its dozen songs including lullabies,Victorian poems, antique "mouth music" and folk tales of shape-shifting seals. There are a few jigs and reels, but the songs are the primary force, delivered in a voice as pure and elemental as a Hebridean seashore.

Gach Sgeul, Every Story. This new album by Julie Fowlis is a carefully selected collection of songs from Gaelic Scotland. Traditional songs presented with new musical accompaniments, this record is all about the songs, and all about the story. With lush accompaniments and arrangements, this record really showcases the strength and maturity of Julie's voice; a change, she says, which has come after having two children. A great singer and friend of mine told me when I was expecting my first child that my voice would change, and he was right. I feel now that this is the true sound of my voice.

This new album by Julie Fowlis is a carefully selected collection of songs from Gaelic Scotland.

If you’ve heard that Scottish Gaelic is an endangered language, then listening to Julie Fowlis might cause some cognitive dissonance. Her voice is so angelic it seems more likely that people would be studying just to be able to understand her. One critic describes her as “pure as a Highland spring”—which works, even though she hails from the Outer Hebrides—and her fourth album is, indeed, a piece of the Gaelic renaissance. Gach Sgeul includes songs from the slow and melancholy to joyful puirt-a-buel (“mouth music”) tunes and is backed by a variety of traditional instruments (fiddle, harmonium) as well as the bouzouki, which has been part of the Celtic revival since the 1960s. My personal favorite of the set is the lively “Ribinnean Riomhach” (Beautiful Ribbons), though I also keep coming back to the touching sound of “An Roghain Dain Do Eimhir XXII” (The Choice). If you want to hear something in Gaelic that’s more accessible, listen to Fowlis’ rendition of the Beatles’ “Blackbird,” released as a single in 2008.
