The dynamic duo of Eriskay Lilt have a huge following throughout the Highlands & Islands. Mind you, it’s not surprising, given the lilting West Coast sound that they produce, guaranteed to have the feet tapping wherever they perform.

On this, their first album, they present a fine mix of original material and a good selection of popular favourites. Eriskay Lilt are equally at home playing Scottish, Irish and Country & Western songs and are also adept at the usual ceilidh dance favourites including Strip the Willow and the Highland Schottische!

With covers of songs from Runrig, Van Morrison and Gina G, plus more traditional material, there is surely something for everyone on this CD.

Don and Kathleen MacDonald are joined on this CD by some of Scotland’s finest musicians, namely John Carmichael (second accordion), Colin Garvin (keyboards), Duncan Findlay (guitar) and Gordon Smith (drums).
