Lauren MacColl's expressive fiddling is showcased on this mix of self-penned and ancient tunes from old Highland collections.

Lauren's well-received debut album When Leaves Fall was one of the recordings chosen for Celtic Connections' Classic Album series of concerts.

With Barry Reid (guitar), Mhairi Hall (piano), Chris Stout (viola), Donald Shaw (harmonium, accordion) and Su-a Lee (cello).

"This confident follow-up builds on its considerable strengths in accomplished fashion. The disc features MacColl's own attractive tunes alongside a fruitful trawl through some gems from her home patch in the east Highlands, drawn from the Highland Music Trust's valuable Highland Collections series. Her refined and expressive fiddling on both slow airs and effervescent dance tunes is supported by regular collaborators..." (The List)
