Cracking second album

Album review in The Guardian say it all…

5/5

"If I’d heard this album without knowing anything about it, I’d have assumed it was by some classy Celtic band who had been playing together for years. Wrong: it’s a solo work by a Scottish multi-instrumentalist in his early 20s, who constructed this set by playing more than 20 different instruments himself. Most of the tracks are dominated by guitar or violin, but he also adds banjo, mandolin, lap steel, organ, oud, bouzouki, whistle and flute. And it works, thanks to his often delicate and thoughtful playing, and arrangements on instrumental pieces that range from the upbeat Ceit and Eilidh’s to the stirring and emotional The Annie Jane or the jaunty, Appalachian-influenced title track. The occasional vocal would have been welcome – Julie Fowlis would have been a good fit – but it’s a remarkable solo achievement."
