Established musician Martin Aelred Colgan releases 'Tam O Shanter'

Scottish artist Martin Aelred Colgan has an impressive career and discography. Having fronted a number of bands Martin was introduced to record producer Colin Thurston (David Bowie and Duran Duran), making his production debut with Juni Morrison of P Funk in 1992 and had minor success with UK artists such as Soul II Soul, Jocelyn Brown and Sinitta. He went on to study flamenco and classical guitar in Scotland under the teachings of the legendary French virtuoso Manitas de Plata. Martin restructured his musical compositions to be more classically based which included tributes dedicated to likes of Salvador Dali, Pablo Picasso and Jacques Henri Lartique. As well as a multi-talented musician playing the classical guitar, cello, piano, violin and numerous other instruments. He can sing fluently in Italian, Spanish and French.

Colgan just released 'Tam O Shanter', a rock anthem based on Robert Burns's poetry and a tribute to the late Billy Mackenzie of The Associates.

Whether or not it is a coincidence that the song and the video were unveiled just after the Halloween period, we won't complain that the video is a reminder of those vibes.
