Monthly news summary of all the happenings and up and coming events in the Scottish Traditional Music scene.
This album contains a really nice collection of music. The tunes have an easy familiarity and pace which is rather beguiling. The tunes which make up the first set, would, according to the sleevenotes, have been popularly played for the old-style 'dancing on the road'. A fascinating thought! Freeland Barbour is a talented musician who plays not only piano accordion, but is also a fine button accordionist and pianist to boot.
Track list: Haidh-O-Haiream, Fear A Bhata, The Pipers Polka, The Clan MacRae Society, Sine Bhan, Tomintianda, The Dancing Master, Robert MacDonald Valtos, An Linne Dubh, The Old Rustic Bridge, Cape Ann, Nuair Bha Mi Og, Camastianavaig, MacDonald Of The Isles March, An Ataireachd Ard, Margaret Cameron Of Pitlochry, Fagail Steornabhaigh, Hugh Cheape’s Salute To The Lone Penguin, Oidche Mhath Leibh.
