(October 2010) 13 tracks (50 mins): The Arran Ceilidh * Mo Nighean Donn * Bear Me O'er * Corriegills * Oran Gaoil * Miss Mary Anderson * Faidhir An t-Seasgainn * Kenmare To Brodick * The Arran Boat Song * The Arran Maid * Arran Farmers * Oran Na Dibhe * Shiskine Barn Dance.

A selection of Arran's best music played by some of Scotland's leading traditional musicians, directed and arranged by Arran native Gillian Frame.

Just as Arran lies on the geological fault line between Highland and Lowland, so too it lies on the border between cultures. At the frontier of Gaeldom for nearly 1500 years, the island has a unique cultural identity and music.

What has united the peoples of Arran has been a love of the place which the Gaels called Eilean Mo Ghaoil or Beloved Isle. This feeling they expressed through their music, which was woven into the tapestry of their lives.

By mixing previously unrecorded archive material and newer compositions, this CD creates a portrait of the island and its people in music.

Gillian Frame (fiddle, viola, vocals) with Angus Lyon (accordion, piano, rhodes, melodica), Ali Hutton (pipes, guitar), Kathleen Graham (vocals) and Ross Kennedy (vocals, guitar).
