Monthly news summary of all the happenings and up and coming events in the Scottish Traditional Music scene.
This is a beautiful album from one of Scotland's favourite singers and guitarists. Comprising mainly previously unreleased material gathered from surviving private, concert and studio recordings, this album has at its heart tracks from a projected solo album of Scottish and Irish love songs. Tony worked on these recordings at home in Arlington throughout 2001 for as long as his health would allow, and the resulting takes were completed and mixed in Edinburgh in accordance with his instructions. The results are powerful proof of his genius.
The project would not have been possible without the generous contribution of skills, resources, advice and guidance from many individuals and organisations on both sides of the Atlantic, detailed in the sleeve notes. Executive producer Stuart Eydmann.
