Led by harp player Corrina Hewat - Young Tradition Award finalist. The music on this album is a joy. A fusion of many aspects of folk and jazz, with piano, guitar, fiddle, bass & percussion adding to the Celtic harp... a magical blend of the familiar and the exotic!

"refreshingly enjoyable album" Inverness Courier.
Stylish, sophisticated, lever-flippin’ good! Young Tradition Award finalist Corrina Hewat plays the harp like an angel… albeit a seductively funky one! With a lightly smoky voice and a superb fingering technique, Corrina slips between the traditional folk harp repertoire, jazz slides and interpretational chordings with a silken ease.
Corrina’s expertise is underpinned by the talents of David Milligan on piano and guitar, with luminous viola, fiddle, bass and percussion enhancing the atmosphere. The jazz element of this album is strongly present, in excellent proportion to the traditional. Reels, jigs and strathspeys are here too, superbly interpreted, but perhaps the interpretational highlight is Corrina’s throaty rendition of Lassie Lie Near Me, which would surely have Burns on his knees at her feet…or higher!
