"This album has been simmering on the back burner for a number of years. It has always been my intention to release an album of ceilidh songs and indeed that was my plan when I started recording during the early stages of the Coronavirus national lockdown. As the weeks went by and I started to collect, write and arrange music it became apparent that this was not going to be exclusively an album of ceilidh songs but a project which has been inspired by the events which happened during lockdown. It consists songs that were either written during this period or songs which I sourced for performing on Comhairle Nan Eilean Siar's weekly online ceilidhs. I drafted in a lot of musical friends to help me out and I'd like to thank them all for their support and their contributions to this recording." Iain MacIver.
