‘The Macs’ continue their emphasis on strong harmony vocals with their first album since 1999’s Keepers. This recording reflects their summer tours of the Highlands, with songs of fishing boats and harbours, farms and battlefields.
Stephen Quigg replaces Derek Moffat, whose untimely death in 2001 was such a loss to the music of Scotland. Stephen has quickly settled into The McCalmans heavy schedule of touring and has already made his own personal mark within the group, with his strong vocals and sense of fun.
