“Sadly, this is the final chapter in the story of a man who gave so much to traditional music and song. Born in Greenock, Tony Cuffe developed his craft as a singer and guitarist in Scotland’s folk music boom of the 1970s and became an internationally recognised figure through his work with groups such as Alba, Jock Tamson’s Bairns and Ossian. In 1989 he made his home in Massachusetts, where his solo career blossomed and his teaching abilities ensured the continuation of the carrying stream. This album comprises mainly previously unreleased material… on which he was working before his untimely death at the end of 2001. A fitting tribute to a popular man whose contribution to the world of traditional music and song will be fondly remembered.”
