This is Hector's 4th album with Wildgoose and he has returned to his Scottish roots with most of the songs coming from Scotland.
All of the accompaniments are provided by Vicki Swan and Jonny Dyer and Moira Craig provides some lovely harmony singing.
Hector has a very fine tenor voice with a most incredible range. His interpretation of traditional and modern songs, mostly with a Scottish flavour, are second to none. He has an extensive repertoire of Burns’ songs and has included just one on this album since he has recorded a complete album of them in the past. He has been singing in venues of all descriptions for the last 50 years and is an experienced performer which shows through on this album.
Vicki Swan and Jonny Dyer are two of the most wide ranging accomplished musicians around in the folk world today and Hector has chosen them to do most of the accompaniments on the album. A wise choice resulting in a very varied album with very inventive backings.
The selection of tracks in this album is mostly comprised of songs which are part of my regular performances and some which should have been. There is at the end of the day, always a difficult choice and a better song.’
