Congratulations are surely due to the “Tannies” for this, an album to celebrate 50 years in 2018 as one of Scotland’s top folk bands. There is some really good music on this, their best in years, I’d say. Includes appearances from far too many musicians to list.
The second “Christchurch Cathedral” in track #3 is a jig setting by fiddler John Martin, which works very well indeed.
I’m hugely grateful for track # 7, a composition of G.S. MacLennan which I hadn’t come across before.
The final track is a tribute to the late Gordon Duncan [ RIP ].
The unknown jig in the finals set is Jackie Small’s played in A.
Correction to my last post: it’s the Flowers Of Spring/Tom Billy’s not Jackie Small’s ie the first not the second tune in the famous De Dannan set on Selected Jigs & Reels).
