McKidd releases charity folk album

Kevin McKidd is releasing a charity album of folk music described as a "love letter to Scotland".

The Grey's Anatomy and Trainspotting actor teamed up with friends including Del Amitri musician Bryan Tolland, producer/composer Nick Lloyd-Webber and MP Angus Robertson to create the Speyside Sessions.

Actor Ewan McGregor has voiced a short teaser video for the album.

All proceeds from the sale of Speyside Sessions will go to Save The Children, which Kevin regularly fundraises for.

The actor, originally from Elgin in Moray, did guitar and vocals on most of the 14 tracks on the album, which includes traditional ballads and reels.

He said: "The most important thing is that it's all for Save The Children.

"What's great about Scottish folk music is that it's a niche market, but hopefully I'll be able to get people listening to this that wouldn't normally."

The album was recorded during an intense week at Hogmanay in a house in Moray, on the banks of the River Spey.

Douglas Hamilton, head of Scotland at Save the Children, said: "The album sounds totally unique and we're honoured that Kevin has chosen to do this for Save The Children."
