This cracking album marks Brian McNeill’s musical half-century.
Apart from bodhran on four tracks and bouzouki on one track by Tad Sargent, Brian plays all the instruments and sings all the songs on this album. Not only that, but Brian has written all the songs and most of the tunes, emphasising yet again what an exceptional talent this man is. Unusually, Brian has also recorded The Burning Of Auchendoon as an instrumental piece.
