Donnie is supported by Eric Cloughley and, Gleniddich Fiddle Champion, Maggie Adamson.

Donnie Munro(vocals, guitar), Eric Cloughley (producer, engineer, acoustic guitar, backing vocals), Maggie Adamson (fiddle).

"The idea of recording a fully acoustic live album really takes me back to where it all began for me a as a very young musician on the Isle of Skye, where, prior to the onset of my early Runrig days. For me, performance has always been about delivering the song and with the acoustic performance in particular there is that opportunity to strip everything back to its most basic and most direct communicative elements, and for the narrative to take hold. I have always felt as a performer, that when you find the deepest connection with the song as a singer, is where you 'give yourself up' to the song and in essence you engage in that 'sweet surrender." Donnie Munro.
