Margaret Stewart was born and brought up in Lewis in the Outer Hebrides. She won the premier award for singing at the National Mod in 1993. Her chief interest has always been in traditional songs and in the singing style of her home area. At the first integrated Summer School of Gaelic music, song and dance - Ceolas - in South Uist, she and Allan MacDonald decided to make a recording which reunited the song and pibroch, and one which represented the traditional singer's style. Margaret takes lead vocals. In 2008 she won the award for Gaelic Singer of The Year.
ALLAN MacDONALD is one of three famous brothers in the Scottish piping world, from Glenuig in Moidart. He is particularly interested in the relationship between Gaelic songs and pibroch and has written an academic thesis on the subject. He and Margaret Stewart focus on that connection with some of the songs in this production. Allan plays pipes and adds vocals.
ALLAN (fiddle) & INGRID HENDERSON (clarsach and piano), IAIN MacFARLANE (fiddle), IAIN MacDONALD (flute and whistle) and NICK TURNER (bass guitar) are the accompanists. The album was recorded at Watercolour Studios, Ardgour, by Nick Turner and was produced by lain and Allan MacDonald.
