Scottish traditional and newly-composed tunes played on the acoustic flatpicking guitar by John Carnie.
The first album of its type to feature an entirely Scottish selection of tunes flatpicked on the acoustic guitar, covering the entire spectrum of traditional music from Shetland reels through to Borders jigs, and from West Highland harp tunes to swingy East Coast hornpipes.
With Brian Shiels (double bass), Dave Moir (guitar) and Spider Mackenzie (harmonica).
"I have long played and taught guitar and been a fan of some of the great Scottish, Irish and American flatpickers. With this album we have tried to capture something a bit different and also hope to help raise the profile of the guitar in Scottish music." (John Carnie)
