Second album from the high energy Orkney band The Chair - in the driving seat with folk music for the 21st Century, traditional and innovative.

The band has achieved international acclaim since their debut album 'Huinka'. Here they have successfully captured their dynamic, energetic festival performances onto CD.

Infectious dance music steeped in Orcadian heritage, their big sound is stretched over eleven tracks of tunes and songs, yet remains acoustic at heart.

The Chair was voted Scottish Folk Band Of The Year - Scots Trad Music Awards 2008.

Brian Cromarty (vocals, banjo, mandolin), Gavin Firth ( guitar), Bob Gibbon ( accordion), Eric Laughton (drums, bodhran), Douglas Montgomery (fiddle, viola, banjo, mandolin), Kenny Rich (fiddle), Robbie Thomsom (djembe, percussion, hammer).

Special Guests: Henry Bateman (bass), Andrew Gifford (bass, double bass), Aimee Leonard (vocals), Fionn MacArthur (fiddle), Jonathan Rich (bass).

"Raw anarchic energy underpinned by impressively tight delivery: They are a true party band with depth, heart and ample collective talent." Sue Wilson, HI-Arts.
