An album of songs and mouth music from the Campbell family of singers from Greepe in the Isle of Skye.

Caimbeulaich a Ghnioba, as the family are known in Gaelic, are renowned pipers and singers - a veritable dynasty in the Gaelic world. No less than seven Campbells have won the prestigious Mod Gold Medal.

They grew up in a village where music was a constant companion, emulating the world surrounding them - the sea, the land, work, dancing, love and the village itself. Mary Ann comments: “Music and singing was part of my family life from day one. Mum and Uncle Murdo grew up with music very much as a part of the community and a way of life – you went to visit someone, you had a song; young went to work on the croft, you had a song.”

Kenna Campbell, Seumus Campbell, Maggie MacDonald, Wilma Kennedy (vocals), Mary Ann Kennedy (vocals, clarsach, piano). Guests: Alasdair Fraser (fiddle), Natalie Haas ('cello), Lorne MacDougall (low whistle), James Lindsay (double bass), Finlay Wells (guitar).
