Re-issue of a recording made in 1984 by seven Edinburgh-based musicians, with an imaginative combination of instruments.

Sprangeen came together in 1982 for a special festival, Women Live In Scotland. They stayed together for two years. The two clarsach players, Mary MacMaster and Patsy Seddon went on to form the duo, Sileas and also joined up with two others to form The Poozies.

Mary is now in a trio, Shine with Corrina Hewitt and Alyth Mc Cormick. Fiddler, Rosa Michaelson later formed The Loose Moose Ceilidh Band.

Unique and imaginative combination of fiddles, metal and gut strung celtic harps, concertinas, flute, whistle and double bass.

The harps take the rhythm role as well as leading the tune.

Kathleen King (double bass, fiddle), Marta McGlynn (concertina), Mary MacMaster (metal-strung clarsach, whistle. temple bells, vocals), Rosa Michaelson (fiddle, triangle, duck call), Val Peek (violin), Patsy Seddon (gut strung clarsach, fiddle, vocals), Ann Ward (concertina, flute).
