A classic album with widespread appeal. Alasdair Fraser and Paul Machlis together explore the breathtaking harmonic resonances of ancient Gaelic airs, with contemporary settings of tunes from the Reverend Patrick MacDonald’s 1784 Collection of Highland Vocal Airs and Captain Simon Fraser’s 1816 edition of Airs and Melodies Peculiar to the Highlands of Scotland and the Isles. Alasdair Fraser (fiddle, viola), Paul Machlis (piano, synthesizers), Tommy Hayes (bodhran), Todd Philips (bass), Ron Wilson (drums).
