A long awaited debut album from well-kent Inverness button box player, Dougie MacDougall.
He has waited until his 88th year to make this recording.
This album of 20 carefully selected tracks offers a great mix of tunes including jigs, reels, polkas, waltzes, marches and slow airs.
Includes some of his own fantastic compositions.
"To play the 3-row button box is not a skill that is given to many and we should salute those that have it, and Dougie is amongst that distinguished number. So it is with the greatest admiration for him, and his wonderful family, that I commend this recording to you. It is highland through and through and the best of stuff." Freeland Barbour.
