Calum and Annie Johnston were born on the Island of Barra. As this album amply demonstrates, both were fine singers - by which is meant not so much that they possessed voices which would have been at home on the concert stage, as that they performed their songs with great sympathy, with subtlety and with respect for the Gaelic context in which both they and the songs had their origins. Calum was also a piper - he died suddenly, while piping the coffin of Sir Compton MacKenzie to the grave in 1973. From the archives of The School Of Scottish Studies and now on CD. The accompanying CD booklet contains the full Gaelic lyrics (with English translations), spoken track transcriptions, photographs and notes.
