The ever inventive Sandy Brechin shows his contemporary style of accordion playing to the full.
Sandy has toured and recorded extensively with Burach, Seelyhoo, The Sandy Brechin Band and his ceilidh band The Sensational Jimi Shandrix Experience.
The original album was received with great acclaim and was voted one of the best folk albums of 1996 by BBC Radio Scotland's Travelling Folk programme.
"Every note is spot on, and there is a degree of control (a word which keeps coming up) in the music which is all too rare in folk accordion players: no racing away with a tune, and nothing so fast that the music gets blurred. Sandy's fingers may be a blur at times, but the notes are always crisp and clear." Alex Monaghan, The Living Tradition.
Sandy Brechin (accordion), Aaron Jones (bass guitar, bouzouki), Colin Macfarlane (guitars, mandolin, lapsteel), Jim Walker (drums, percussion).
