ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
After twelve years in the States, Scots born singer Morrison returns to his homeland for inspiration on his latest project. He takes some of his favorite Robert Burns' work and has rocked them further than they have been rocked before but still choosing on occasion not to forget his Celtic roots. This album is sure to bring attention to those who are unfamiliar with Scotland’s Bard, by opening up his material to a whole new and somewhat diverse audience.

Enlisted on this album are Morrison’s punk rock pals from Boston’s Street Dogs, Johnny Rioux and Marcus Hollar, whom Morrison plays with regularly these days on the Festival Circuit.
Joining him too are seasoned Celtic performers, Banchory’s Scottish Golden Fiddle Champion - Judi Nicolson and from Virginia, Kendall Rogers. Houston’s Celtic Rockers Murder the Stout contribute with first class bass & drums from Jay Brooks and Andy Salmon respectively.

There is the welcome addition of the authentic upright bass playing of Corey Kaiser who can be found performing on Broadway’s “Million Dollar Quartet” showpiece. Rounding off the line-up is the beauty you can find in the voice of Ireland’s Aoife Ni Ghlionn, who gives Morrison’s lyrics a very MacGowan/O’Connor-esque feel. All this is complemented sporadically with Morrison’s own distinctive driving squeezebox.

A Must Have for any Celtic Music Library
This CD is a must-have for Celtic Music lovers everywhere. I'm purchasing another copy to give as a gift. Hugh puts out the music of Robert Burns with a new and bold passion! This music is very much alive as Hugh recorded it. From the opening track of Leezy Lindsay that I can't get out of my head, to the fiery intro riff on Ye Jacobites by Name all the way up to the only version of Auld Lang Syne other than my own that I wish to ever hear again, Morrison will have you leaving this CD on repeat time and time again! The production is of the highest quality, the instruments played superbly and Morrison's vocals are raw and intense.
