A tribute by Ian Hutson to the late composer and accordionist Jim Johnstone - a perfectionist in performance, whose motto was "always play for your audience".

Tunes composed by Jim, and sets as played by him, are all here in this collection.

Ian Hutson (accordion) with Neil Dawson (fiddle), Alasdair MacLeod (second accordion), Jim Nichol (piano), Mark McDougall (bass) and Gordon Smith (drums).

"The accordionists that I revere are no more than a handful - Jim Johnstone was one of them..." (Robert Black)
