The Caledonian Companion

This is a gem and goes by, to some extent, unnoticed. That is a shame because this album is full of now almost unheard-of giants of the traditional music scene.

Charlie Bremner and John Grant show off their talents on the fiddle, Willie Fraser plays some gems on the now rather neglected mouth organ, and tin whistle maestro Alex Green plays some dazzling stuff, despite the loss of two fingers in a mill accident many years ago.

If you want to hear some great traditional tunes by these remarkable characters, not often heard these days, then you should try this!
