According to Folkworld, this is "a very harmonious album, taking the listeners mind away into day dreams. Without doubt one of the memorable Scottish releases of this year."
This is Cliar’s second album, traditional and contemporary songs & tunes, three sets, & puirt a-beul/mouth music. Their first recording, "Cliar", 2000, won Best Album in 2003 at the inaugural ‘Scots Traditional Music Awards’.
"In a short space of time, Cliar have played all over Scotland and Ireland, and took Cape Breton by storm with their appearance at the Celtic Colors festival in 2001, earning them reviews proclaiming "this was the best performance I’ve seen yet of this great Scottish vocal tradition, and it earned Cliar a well-deserved standing ovation." They have even played in front of thousands of people at the Royal Albert Hall, but are always happy touring the Highlands & Islands of Scotland, where they are based."
