Aonghas' recent CD The Hills of Glengarry is out and about. It is released by Shoogle Records and includes a great variety of tunes, including many by Aonghas. It is really wonderful to hear these players and these tunes and will be a welcome addition to any Scottish fiddle CD library. For more information, go to ABOUT Aonghas. Norman Chalmers writes: "In this age of creeping homogeneity, if you want a mature taste of salt, peat and Gaelic in your fiddle music, here it is."
There are some pretty neat interviews of Aonghas at Am Baile. You can listen to the interview, and/or read the transcriptions. They were done with Moray Firth Radio in the 1990s.
