To reflect that ethos, we wanted to challenge ourselves, to break new ground, to work with international artists, and to create a work of meaningful significance for the opening of the distillery.
In Admiral Fallow, Madeleine Roger and Yu Tsan Pin, we found our perfect foil - diverse, passionate artists, with an appetite for discovery - to showcase the inspiration behind The Cairn.
Admiral Fallow are a Scottish musical group formed in 2007 by singer-songwriter Louis Abbott and based in Glasgow. The band have four beautifully diverse albums to their name: Boots Met My Face (2011), Tree Bursts In Snow (2012), Tiny Rewards (2015), and The Idea of You (2021). In their 13 years together, the band have taken their music around the world, touring the UK, Europe, North America and Australia.
I've always taken inspiration from the landscape around me. This is a very unique collaboration for us, given that there's a brand new voice coming into the sound of music that we make. - Admiral Fallow
Madeleine Roger is a contemporary folksinger from Winnipeg, Canada. While skillfully accompanying herself on acoustic guitar, it is her artistry as a songwriter that can silence a room. Madeleine's debut album "Cottonwood" saw her nominated for "Songwriter of the Year" at the Canadian Folk Music Awards (2019) and "Producer of the Year" at the Western Canadian Music Awards (2019).
This opportunity with The Cairn is allowing us to try out something we've never done before. I think that's the whole purpose of songwriting, it's to share an idea, and share a feeling. - Madeleine Roger
