Skyedance

This album uses old tunes from Reverend Patrick McDonald’s 1784 Collection of HIghland Vocal Airs.

According to the liner notes, many of these are both songs and dances.

Skye Dance and Harris Dance were the only titles given to many of the ancient tunes, so they appear more than once in the same set sometimes.

From Culburnie Music copyright 1986

IMO, Alasdair’s best work

I have about 5 Alasdair Fraser CD’s. For some reason, I never had this one, but once I heard it, I think it’s his best.
