Glaschu is the new studio album from urban Gael, now highland resident, Mary Ann Kennedy. Dedicated to Glasgow, the album features songs and poetry celebrating life in Glasgow from the past and present. Mary Ann's debut solo album, 'An Dàn', confirmed her place as a composer and songwriter as well as performer, released on ARC to critical acclaim in July 2017. She writes: "I grew up in the southside of Glasgow, in a city rich in languages and cultures, and as part of Scottish Gaels' biggest urban diaspora. It was something of a strange and wonderful upbringing for me and my sister, feeling part of a big community but at the same time- in terms of peers at least- sometimes feeling like the only Gaels in the village. Things change, and it's a joy to see today at the bottom of the street where I grew up, one of Glasgow's three Gaelic schools. You can take the girl out of Glasgow, but never Glasgow out of the girl, and in the spirit of Gaels' eternal need to sing about home, this is my Gaelic love-song for the city in all it's guises- the voices of arrivals in search of a new life and of those, like me, born and bred there with Gaelic as our first language."
