This album Càirdeas meaning kinship/friendship in Scottish and Irish Gaelic is a celebration of family, friends and cultures spanning Scotland Ireland and Canada.

Recorded during the Covid lockdown in the winter of 2021/21, this album Càirdeas was Brian and Fionnag's unique way of reaching out to friends during this difficult time.

Includes a 12 page booklet with lyrics and translations.

"We were both brought up in families that sang. Brian lived in Newfoundland, Canada until he was seven years old and then lived in Dublin, Ireland. Fionnag was brought up on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland. Music and song permeated family life as we sang songs from the Gaelic traditions as well as folk songs of various genres." Brian and Fionnag.
