ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Highlands and Islands vol one: Loch Shiel

Miraculous is based in the Scottish Highlands, known the world over for its unique and diverse history and culture. This rich background has yielded a 21st Century generation of musicians who are not only at the peak of their profession, but have a true sense of belonging. The "Highlands and Islands" series of radio programmes and CD's has been created to celebrate these musicians and singers, the people who surround them, the stories they've grown up with and the land that defines them.

The debut album "Vol. 1 - Loch Shiel", starts the series at the hidden heart of the West Coast - a veritable hotbed of music, song, and of course, great craic. Join the MacFarlane family, Jim Michie and his boat - the Sileas, some of the area's great musicians and other friends for an unforgettable journey.

47 minutes of glorious music and 20 minutes of stories and good craic plus enhanced CD features with extra audio, visuals and web links. Featuring music from Cliar, Iain MacDonald & Iain MacFarlane, Daimh, Hoogie, Jim Hunter, and Margaret MacLellan & Blazin Fiddles.

James Anderson

Great CD! Brought back some wonderful memories.
This is a wonderful CD, which captures the spirit of Glenfinnan and Loch Shiel perfectly. My wife and I spent our honeymoon at Glenfinnan House Hotel and went on a Loch Shiel excursion aboard the Sileas, both subjects of this marvelous musical compilation.

If you are interested in experiencing the Western Highlands of Scotland via the music and personalities of that picturesque locale, THIS is the CD for you.

Al Carlisle

Wonderful. Excellent production.
A very good CD. Good sound. Good variety. I liked the naration along with the music. I had a much better feel about Loch Shiel than I would have had with just the music. I'm ready for Vol 2.

JOHN ORR

GREAT STUFF. LOOKING FORWARD TO REST OF SERIES
FANTASICALLY ENJOYABLE. I WAS OVER IN SKYE LAST SEPTEMBER AND AM LOOKING FORWARD TO THAT ISSUE. THIS ISSUE MADE ME FEEL THE WAY I DID THEN, WHICH WAS JUST TERRIFIC. THANKS TO ALL INVOLVED INCLUDING CDBABY WHICH MADE IT SO EASILY AVAILABLE IN THE U.S.

A wonderful CD that will get you interested in Celtic music and make you want to

Steve Denny

Fine sound tour. Spoken bits are fantastic.
First heard this on Thistle & Shamrock. The tour is full of flavor and sound is pro all the way. The spoken bits really add to the "survey" format. This comes across like your'e really there. Reminds me of Fire in the Kitchen (Chieftans) of a few years ago but with a story element too.
