It has been pleasure and a privilege working on ‘“In Search of Scotland'. The music complements the history perfectly, reflecting the moods and the various periods and events with great sensitivity”. (Fiona Watson, Presenter of In Search Of Scotland)“This music is a fascinating combination of the old & the new. It evokes all those emotions associated with Scotland and it's turbulent past: mystery, warfare, struggle, achievement, turmoil and joy. They are all part of the rich tapestry of sound that is shared by Scots, old & new. Old, traditional melodies are blended with the digital technology.

Harp, whistle, bodhran, guitar, fiddle & voice are placed within this modern context yet, because of their innate strength, retaining their own character. It is a potent mixture of the traditional and the contemporary. It does, indeed, evoke a musical and historical landscape: the longer sequences are like rivers, valleys and journeys: the shorter pieces are like landmarks " standing stones, castles, cathedrals and factories. This is history in harmony”. (Gordon Menzies, producer of BBC Scotland television series ‘“In Search of Scotland').
