ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A sparkling and energetic collection of the most-requested and favored Scottish traditional songs in Smithfield Fair’s repertoire. These timeless classics exhibit the strength and timelessness of songwriting traditions in Scotland with songs by some of Scotland's greatest, including Robert Burns, James Hogg, Robert Tannahill, Lady Carolyn Douglas Scott, John Cameron and others, all done in Smithfield Fair’s inimitable approach and style. Also included is Dudley and Jan’s title track, written as a candidate for Scotland’s national anthem. Selected from albums released over the band's 20+ year history, the selections were chosen by repeated audience requests. The original tracks were revisted, remixed and remastered to bring all up to the exciting high standard audiences have come to expect from Smithfield Fair.

C. Michael Price, Ceili Magazine

A real charmer!
The warm live quality of the songs makes you feel like you have old friends sitting with you, playing songs from the heart. Jan does a beautiful job on the lead vocal. Jan’s voice rings and rolls…the mandolin by Dudley, is moving and tasteful with the guitars and vocals making a really memorable recording… the subtle yet fitting bass lines by Bob Smith and the very expressive and tasty lead guitar work at the end, by J. David Praet, adds an unexpected touch. With sixteen tracks, this is a CD that will delight young and old for as long as Scotland shall last. Get a copy for your collection. It’s a real charmer.
