Latest album from prolific Scottish songwriter Tom Fairnie.

This album was produced and engineered in Austin, Texas by Grammy nominated producer, Merel Bregante, it features musicians who have played alongside Doc Watson, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson and Jackson Browne.

Tom co-writes with fellow poet Bob Shields and together they produce the words that Tom’s melodies provoke.

Tom writes across genres but it was his fondness for Americana and the obvious connections between it and Scottish folk music that gave rise to this particular mixture, which Merel christened, Celticana.

Sleeve notes include song lyrics.
