Alec Finn of De Dannan and Kevin MacLeod of The Occasionals share a passion for vintage mandolins, bouzoukis, resonator, slide and tenor guitars, crafted in the 20th century, the zenith of their development.

This spirited Scots/Irish collaboration features a wide range of great traditional Scottish tunes and highlights the wonderful sounds of these superb instruments.

Kevin recorded his debut solo album Springwell in 1999, on which both Alec Finn and Frankie Gavin (also of De Dannan) guested. When Kevin started planning a follow up to Springwell, the idea of a complete string duet with Alec, playing Scottish tunes, became increasingly appealing to Kevin.

Alec, equally enthusiastic about the project, was delighted to come to Scotland to record the album and the time spent in the studio was a particularly enjoyable experience for these two gifted musicians.

A rare understanding developed between Kevin and Alec, with remarkable results as you will hear.
