When Dick Gaughan signed to Greentrax in 1996, MD Ian Green was over the moon. They had been friends for years, since Ian’s involvement in the Police Folk Club (Fuzzfolk), and when Greentrax was launched in 1986, Dick was at the top of Ian’s ‘wants list’.

Dick stayed with Greentrax and released several albums with the label. He is of course one of the most highly regarded folksingers and guitarists in the UK and, in addition to his early Handful Of Earth album, received Melody Maker’s Folk Album of The Year Award in 1981.

Dick went on to be inducted into the Scots Trad Music Hall of Fame in 2009, while later the same year he received a Lifetime Achievement Award at BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

Dick has had a long and very successful solo career but has also been a member of some top bands: The Boys Of The Lough, Five Hand Reel and the shorter-lived but quite unique Clan Alba.

Sail On is a stunning album with every song a winner, although the inclusion of the late Hamish Henderson’s The Freedom Come All Ye proves to be an amazing finisher and Land Of The North Wind a stunning opener.

Session musicians include Mary MacMaster & Patsy Seddon (Sileas), Kathy Stewart, Tich Frier, Davy Steele, Bobby Eaglesham, Fred Morrison and Mike Travis.

This is a very special album by a very special artist.
