Calasaig's second album features a variety of traditional and contemporary compositions played with a style and maturity which allows slow airs and up-tempo jigs to sit easily alongside self-penned ballads and their own interpretations of Burns.
Arrangements of Gow and MacLellan are further enhanced by the exquisite clarsach playing of guest Maggie Maclnnes. Calasai are Keith Easdale, Keith Johnston, Kirsten Easdale, Rod Morison and Celine Donaghue.
