A stunning selection of slow airs and laments of Scotland performed by fiddle maestro Paul Anderson.

Paul hails from Royal Deeside in Aberdeenshire and is one of the finest exponents of the Scots fiddle tradition.

Paul carefully selected some of his favourite tunes for this album.

The album highlights his passion for some excellent tunes of the masters which includes compositions by James Scott Skinner, William Marshall, Hector MacAndrew, Niel Gow, James Crockat, Nathaniel Gow, James Macpherson, Donald Riddell, Charles Grant along with Paul's self-penned tunes.

Paul Anderson (fiddle), George Donald (piano), tony McManus (guitar), Dave Sinton (combolins).

"Slow airs are probably my favourite type of tune to play as there's so much scope for self expression and interpretation of the melody. Although the bare bones of the tune are there, it's up to the musician to add colour, light and shade to the canvas, bringing the story to life and hopefully move the listener; well at least that's what I try to do." Paul Anderson.
