"Sarona" - WPS Records - WPSCD007

The music of James Scott Skinner 1843 - 1927

Michael's latest album is sequenced and arranged by Kevin Dempsey who also plays on the CD. Other featured musicians include legendary fiddler Dave Swarbrick and Fairport Convention's Ric Sanders.

"strong, fiery ... compelling" - Dirty Linen

" without question an exceptionally talented and gifted fiddle player." - The Living Tradition

"marvellous alacrity and seamless musical authority" - Rock 'n' Reel

"a fine album ... the magical mixture of the then and the now that makes the best in modern folk." - Taplas

Michael believes that the music of Scott Skinner has been too long overlooked. There have been but a few recordings, the occasional tune on a folk album, since Skinner's death. With this CD James Scott Skinner's music can be heard and enjoyed once again.

Tracks: Battle of Falkirk; Bovaglie's Plaid; Lumps of Pudding; Cradle Song; Tullochgorum; The Wounded Hussar; Stirling Castle/Angus Campbell/The Auld Wheel; The Music of Spey; Sarona; Lady Charlotte Campbell; The Bonny Lass O'Bon Accord
