"I normally dread samplers, thinking that I will find perhaps one or two great performers stuck among tracks that I wouldn't want to hear twice; this is a happy exception. This collection contains 17 tracks representing different performers of new Scottish music. The style is a combination of traditional folk melody with some jazz and rock augmentation. For the most part, the instruments are traditional guitar, pipes and drum (no bagpipes) with a little slide guitar, electric augmentation and synthesizer thrown in very unobtrusively. Roughly 3/4 of the album has vocal tracks, about three of which are already stuck in my head after a few listens. My knowledge of Scottish music before this was limited to anonymous bagpiping and folk players and Mouth Music, a group which tends toward a more extreme synthesizer rock/hip-hop fusion with traditional Scottish singing; this album falls solidly in the middle with some modern jazz and rock influences thrown in. The recording has wonderful atmosphere and is worth hearing on headphones. END"

"I bought this cd for my dad. He had it when I was growing up and we painted signs together. Last year he lost it and so I went hunting. It is his favorite cd and I was so happy with the prompt delivery of a fully functioning product. I listened to the entire cd and it plays great, no skips, no nothing........very pleased."

"Bought this just from listening on Amazon. I wish I could find more compilations like this. For the most part I enjoy the entire disc. It's not "traditional" celtic music, but updated pop/rock/folk utilising celtic instruments.
Give it a listen. If you like what you hear on the samples, you'll enjoy this disc."
