Album information

Notes From A Hebridean Island features the very best Scottish and Gaelic singing and instrumental music played by some of the best exponents of the art.

Produced by Calum Malcolm (The Blue Nile), Notes From A Hebridean Island features the vocal and instrumental talents of William Jackson and the Mackenzie sisters accompanied by Scotland's finest traditional musicians: James McIntosh (pipes), Tony McManus (guitars), Aidan O'Rourke (fiddle) and Ian Lowthian (accordion).

Compositions are taken from all over Scotland - from the remote Atlantic archipelago of St. Kilda to the Isle of Skye and the Highlands. Closing the album is Looking South Over The Border, an original composition by Ian Lowthian.

The performers' affinity with the music is evident as they breathe fresh life into these traditional compositions.
