A superb debut album from the talented BBC Scotland's Young Folk Singer of the Year Robyn Stapleton.

The album features some of Scotland and Ireland's most beautiful folk songs, and each song is a story of changing fortune or twist of fate.

Robyn hails from Stranraer in the South West of Scotland. the area has close ties with Ireland and (weather permitting) Belfast can be seen clearly from Portpatrick.

The choice of songs on this album reflects Robyn's love for Scots song and this strong connection to Irish music and song.

Sleeve notes include the words of all songs

Guest musicians: Kristan Harvey, Alistair Paterson, Stephen Heffernan, and Hajime Takahashi.

"This beguiling vehicle for the vocal talents of award-winning young Scottish folkie Robyn Stapleton finds her tackling songs from the Scottish and Irish tradition linked by the common theme of the vagaries of fate and changing fortune. Robyn's exemplary efforts are subtly underpinned by the instrumental contributions of her fellow Scots Alistair Iain Paterson and demon fiddler Kristan Harvey as she breathes new life into classic folk ballads such as Willie O'Winsbury and the haunting Jacobite pipe tune, MacCrimmon's Lament." Music Reviewer Kevin Bryan.
