"Hearing the raucous and the wistful tunes of Alastair Savage, I've never felt so proud to be Scottish; his music is so invigorating and soulful, the fact that I've actually no Scottish heritage seems but a technicality... the perfect musical conversational partners...the sounds of home, even for those of us who can't really claim to be a native." - Kate Clarkson, Edinburgh Three Weeks.
