Fraser Shaw was a superb piper, whistle player and composer from Glasgow who resided on the Isle Of Islay.

After his passing in May 2015, a group of friends and family started a Trust in his honour.

Produced by Duncan Lyall, Mac Ìle showcases a flavoursome variety of Fraser's tunes, alongside compositions by Lori Watson, Adam Sutherland, Laura-Beth Salter and Calum MacCrimmon.

A particularly special feature of the album, is Fraser himself playing whistle for his slow air 'Air Chall'.

The video was recorded at Islay Night @ Celtic Connections 2016, the official launch of the trust, which aims to raise money for MS charities through a range of projects celebrating Fraser and his music. The concert consisted of a plethora of talented musicians and singers local to Islay and also, "The Islay Sessioners" playing Fraser's compositions.
