The Back O' The North Wind

by Brian McNeill

The Back O' The North Wind - Brian McNeill: Brian McNeill's 1991 release, is a collection of Scottish folk songs based on the lives of Scots who emigrated to the United States for various political and economic reasons. As Brian writes "Like so many Scots, the emigration experience has been important to my family, and it has always fascinated me. I knew that eventually I would have to explore it artistically... " A CD full of stories in song about the Scots in America. With Brian McNeill, Neil Hay, Dick Gaughan, Iain MacKintosh, Gary Coupland, Mike Travis & Dougie Pincock.

"...a songwriter who can pack a man's lifetime into a few bustling verses and an ear-tugging chorus and give you the feeling that he has said all that needs to be said..." The Scotsman


Media Reviews

A brilliant historical labor of love
Title: A brilliant historical labor of love
Source: All Music Guide
Review: A brilliant historical labor of love, this solo outing is the musical half of his daring and exquisite stage show tying together Scots and American history through the stories of five very different emigrants, both willing and reluctant. McNeill is a truly great songwriter, and this album includes some of his best work..... Danny Carnahan, All Music Guide
