A most unique collection, recorded at two live concerts with Freeland Barbour and special guests.
The album includes contributions from The Occasionals Ceilidh Band - comprising Freeland Barbour (accordion), Mairi Campbell (fiddle), Alison Smith (fiddle), Kevin Macleod (tenor banjo and mandolin), Gus Millar (drums) and Neil MacMillan (piano) - with guests Martin Carthy (songs), Phil Cunningham (accordion), Ross Ainslie (smallpipes and Highland pipes), Simon Thoumire (concertina), Gary West (smallpipes), Jane Gardner (piano), Jane Barbour (piano), Billy Kay (speech) and Cailean Maclean (speech).
These guests appear solo and in various combinations with Freeland which makes for a wonderful album of real listening pleasure.
This album The Music And The Land - The Concert contains much of the magic of these two nights, a chance to hear just a few of the compositions from the book, and also to hear music from the distinguished list of performers.
Everyone in the concert had also made a contribution to the book in some way and this made for a wonderful atmosphere and, in the words of author James Robertson, "A book launch like no other".
Tracks include not only Freeland Barbour’s compositions but those of Phil Cunningham, Gordon Duncan, Simon Thoumire and more, plus traditional tunes.
The album was produced by Freeland Barbour, recorded by Garry Boyle and mastered by Stuart Hamilton at Castlesound Studios, Pencaitland. Design is by Mike Garden at Birnam CD. Front cover photo by Cailean Maclean.
