Kathleen Boyle (accordion, piano, guitar), Julie Fowlis (vocals, whistles, pipes, oboe), Carol-Anne MacKay (pipes, accordion, whistles), Eilidh MacLeod (clàrsach, piano), Martin O'Neill (bodhrán) and Jenna Reid (fiddle, piano).

Dòchas have taken the traditional music scene by storm over the past couple of years, with an extremely successful self-titled debut album and culminating in their winning the Best Up and Coming Band at the 2004 Scottish Traditional Music Awards.

The five girls, and one guy, exude professionalism and rare talent through their performances, embracing Gaelic, Scots, Shetlandic and Irish musical heritage.

In this, their second CD, Dòchas prove that the huge success of their first was no flash in the pan. Dòchas is a truly wonderful band which Dòchas have rocketed to success with sell-out shows throughout Scotland, the United States, Ireland and Canada, as well as several other European countries and their keenly awaited second album will surely add to their continued success.

There is another varied selection of great instrumental tracks and Gaelic songs, all with thoughtful arrangements. The well known Scots song Ae Fond Kiss is sung by fiddler Jenna Reid, and the band are joined on one track by legends of Irish music Maighread and Triona Ni Dhòmhnaill, formerly of Skara Brae. The album was produced by Iain MacDonald.

"They can play big, rumbustious, barnstorming tunes with the best of them - and then turn round and slay you with the exquisite poignancy and lyricism of Julie Fowlis' Gaelic singing." (The Scotsman)
