The 16 tracks on this CD show both Moira's great singing voice and also her songwriting skills as it interlaces a number of traditional Scottish songs that we all know and love with a number of her own compositions. Her songs are inspired by the sights and sounds of Scotland and by its history. The first song "MacIain of Glencoe" was prompted by the infamous massacre of the MacIains (a sept of the MacDonalds) by government order, in the atmospheric Glencoe. In response to a number of requests, you can see the words to MacIain of Glencoe here.
The excellent arrangements on this CD include backing from keyboards, accordion, uillean pipes, whistles, electronic double bass and electric guitar. The playlist includes:
