Well known and loved tunes take you on a musical journey around Scotland. 'My heart's in the Highlands, wherever I go', wrote Rabbie Burns who loved the landscape and music of this uniquely beautiful part of the world. This album is a musical evocation of the stunning mountains, lochs and glens of the Scottish Highlands, with tunes old and new, and the ancient melodies of the Gael. Whether a frequent visitor to this wonderful part of Scotland, or looking forward to the first experience of its beauty, the tranquil airs and evocative pipe tunes of A Highland Journey will take the listener there. Relaxing orchestral sounds, plus the musical instrumental talents of Jack Evans (guitar, whistle, synthesiser), Dougie Pincock (Highland bagpipe), Mairearead Green (smallpipes, accordion) and Innes Watson (fiddle).
