This is a recording of traditional Scottish music featuring the gut-strung harp or clarsach, and also the beautiful sounds of the wire strung harp.

The tunes on this CD are all traditional and are very representative of William's moving solo performances.

Internationally known composer, harpist and multi-instrumentalist William Jackson has been at the forefront of Scottish music for many years. In 1976 he was a founding member of the top Scottish band Ossian.

In addition to performing, William has gained a substantial reputation as a composer, known for combining traditional and classical music with such major works as The Wellpark Suite, St Mungo, Inchcolm and A Scottish Island to his credit.

William's music is featured on many BBC and other television productions. He is in demand as a composer and increasingly as a producer. He directed and performed the music for Battle Of The Clans (The History Channel) and produced music for a series about Scottish National Trust properties for Scottish Television.
