Saor, fronted by sole composer, Andy Marshall are best known for their gritty folk atmosphere enshrouded by a thick mist of Celtic melodicism. The harrowing notes on their debut, Roots, set the precedent for the band’s entire career. This early release from Scottish heroes, Saor boasts 50 minutes of folk epics, including a poem by Henry Scott Ridell as well as many lines professing the beauty of the Scottish countryside. Laden with Marshall’s love of Scottish history and love of the landscape, the album spans 4 songs describing a deep connection to his heritage and birthplace.
