Afloat - The Mollags £13.00
The Mollags are based in Peel and feature a readily identifiable sound largely thanks to the vocal interplay between singer/songwriter/guitarist Greg Joughin and the backing trio of Hillary Gale, who also plays viola, Julie Matthews and Sarah Hewson, who both also add flutes and whistles into the mix. They are backed up by Dave McLean on bass, Caly Roberts on harp, Russell Cowin on djembe, Anglin Buttimore on keyboards and Gordon McKenzie on the drums.
Many of the thirteen songs on Afloat have been staples of The Mollags live set for many years now, such as Unwritten Will, formerly titled Sellafield, Arrane Ny Fee or Sliack Lhiam Bine Dy Yough, and will be very familiar to those who follow The Mollags. Mannin Folk-Through the Years CD £13.99
