Rachel released her forth solo album ‘West’ on 28th September 2018 which was recorded in her late grandparents’ old croft house in Achnahaird, Wester Ross. Catch her on the road soon starting tomorrow in Aberdeen.
‘West is an intriguing album that solidifies Newton’s reputation as one of the best talents in British Folk Music’ Bright Young Folk
“Recorded in the comparative solitude of Wester Ross, Rachel Newton’s ‘West’ never sounds sparse or minimalist, it’s almost as if the setting has helped pour more of herself into this album than ever before. It is a significant accomplishment; a rich, deeply moving, and immensely enjoyable album”. Folk Radio UK
