"Some of Scotland's finest musicians grace this remarkable CD. Their contributions coupled with the producer's skilled input, have produced an album of great diversity and quality which the listener will find to be a sheer delight. It is entirely fitting that this product has been inspired by the Isle Of Raasay, an Island which is itself diverse and beautiful and which has a rich musical heritage." Cailean Maclean.
