Here is a group of young musicians
from South Scotland, performing traditional Scottish music and

HIGH PROFESSIONALISM is the first
impression of this orchestra from the moment you start listening.
Although they are mainly young musicians, they achieve superb
togetherness and musicianship between the players as well as an
amazing sound maturity. Supporting instruments and vocals also
help create a sophisticated sound picture and the accordions blend
in so naturally and smoothly.

a great part of the success of this recording. Here we have Scottish
traditional pieces but they are approached in a new way: they

Scottish characteristics. In brief, the arrangements are talented
Very enjoyable recording, I highly
recommend it. Would be one of the best entertainment accordion
orchestras I have came across.
I also have to remark on the SUPERB
sound recording quality (great cover photo too!).
