About

With this new volume, Barry Douglas once again weaves a magic web with Celtic tunes that have been handed down from generation to generation. His playing is entwined sometimes with new material composed by his musical companions, internationally renowned for their fearless explorations and interpretations of Scottish music.

‘Bíonn cúig insint ar gach scéal agus dhá ghabháil déag ar gach amhrán’: there may be five versions of every story but there are twelve interpretations of each song. The old Irish proverb reflects an acknowledgement that each artist makes his or her own of material that has been handed down.

The result is a beautiful, wistful celebration of melodic riches. Listen and be entranced.
