A debut album of traditional Burns songs from singing duo Sheila Hall and John Shirreffs, well-known figures on the Burns Supper circuit.

The album brings together many of the most popular Burns songs as well as exploring some less familiar, with arrangements from the performers and Colin Caldwell.

Sheila Hall, who hails from the East Coast of Scotland, has been involved in the world of traditional music for many years.

Over 15 years Sheila and her singing partner John Shirreffs have been collaborating to bring fresh arrangements of Burns songs to audiences both at home and abroad.

They have been privileged to represent Glasgow on many occasions at the annual Burns supper in its twin city of Nuremberg, as well as to perform the songs of our national bard in the Pushkin Museum in Moscow.

A unique addition to the Burns discography.

Sheila Hall (vocals, guitar), John Shirreffs (vocals), Lauren MacColl (fiddle), Jennifer Port (clarsach), Andrew MacPherson (djembe), Marissa Waite (bodhran), Norman Chalmers(concertina, bodhran)

"Two contrasting voices, his from classical/light opera, hers from folk/traditional, with a smattering of instrumentalist pals, combine in 15 of the Bard’s creations, and treat them with respect, feeling, humour, and not a little originality." Scotland On Sunday.
