When the opportunity arose a few years ago to tour in the Scottish Highlands with one of my all time favourite folk groups, it was grasped with both hands. Since then the Highland tour has grown as I hope has our friendship. When I mentioned to this same group that I was planning a new album not only did they offer to help with backing, they also offered to record the album in their own digital recording studio - such is their enthusiasm. It is to that end that I offer my sincere thanks to Nick Keir and Ian McCalman of The McCalmans for their boundless energy, generosity, and musical know how, without all of which this album would not have been possible.
This album was recorded in January 96. The weather outside was pretty awful what with snow, ice, wind and rain. But inside Kevock Digital Studios, just outside Edinburgh, the atmosphere as always was one of warmth and friendship. Thanks to all concerned for there help during the recording and production of this album.
"Stephen's new album for 2013 featuring 18 songs in which he took the lead vocal during his years with the McCalmans."
