A compilation of the best tracks from this champion fiddle player's four previous albums. Superb slow airs and driving jigs and reels, with a variety of top backing musicians.

Archie started playing the fiddle when he was thirteen years old, in his home town of Campbeltown under the tutorage of Maurice Duncan. He is a well known face in the traditional music scene and his distinctive, driving and versatile style earned him a nomination for best instrumentalist in the Trad Music Awards 2004.

"Archie McAllister's fiddling, steeped in West Coast dance tradition, carries a frankness of tone that is extremely effective on slow airs and down right exhilarating at full tilt... Archie is arguably the Scottish folk scene's most exciting live fiddler." (Living Tradition)
