A special album performed on Gow's fiddle by Pete Clark and Muriel Johnstone.

Recorded 2017 this release is offers a mix of solo and accompanied tunes with Muriel Johnstone from Pitlochry.

"The 18th-century Perthshire fiddler and composer Niel Gow can have had no bigger champion in modern times than Pete Clark. A Fifer who years ago settled not far from Gow’s home in Inver, near Dunkeld, Clark has devoted albums to Gow’s music, leads an ensemble named after him and for the past 15 years has directed an annual festival in Gow's honour. As solo examples such as Watson’s Class emphasise, Clark's playing can stand alone, with both rhythmical momentum and attention to melodic detail, but the balance and understanding in the duo tracks conspire to present a beautifully rounded programme." The Herald Rob Adams.

"... the sensitive and expert playing by both musicians make for enchanting listening." Mary Larsen, Fiddler Magazine, Summer 2018
