"A rich slice of assertive contemporary Scots tradition from the fiddler/singer composer Lori Watson and her two accomplished partners, accordionist Fiona Young and guitarist Innes Watson"
Norman Chalmers

A landmark recording reflecting some of the breadth and depth of fiddle music from the Scottish Borders. The young musicians on this record have been brought up on Scottish and Borders music. Without doubt they will carve a new place for Borders fiddle music in today’s resurgence of Scottish traditional music. Lori gathered the music and directed the work behind this album which has a menu of traditional Borders tunes and original tunes from the players themselves.

"This is an important landmark in music from the Scottish Borders. You can enjoy it for that, but I'd just like you to enjoy it for even more important reasons - because it's intricate, joyous and wonderful."
Brian McNeill
Head of Scottish Music, Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama
