Ian Bruce is arguably one of the best singers in Scotland, and has also gone on to be a fine songwriter, although this album is mainly Scottish traditional songs.
The album is dedicated to his father, John (Jack) H Bruce, who was at one time the Pipe Major of The London Scottish Regiment, known for their Hodden Grey kilts.
Ian is accompanied by Dougie Pincock (whistles, flute, percussion), Malcolm Stitt (low whistle, bouzouki), Ian Lowthian (accordion, keyboards) and Catriona MacDonald (fiddle).
Ian was later to team with Ian Walker, and then his brother Fraser Bruce.
