Sleeve Notes

Without a doubt the most commercial release ever from Matt McGinn, the King of Folk-writers in Scotland today. He opens with an adaptation from the great Omar Khayyam entitled "Magic Shadow Show" then turns to a humorous vain with "The Wee Kircudbright Centipede". Side 2, takes us to the Highlands of Scotland to meet "Stornoway Rose" and the story of "The One Eyed Woman" of the McLeod Clan.

Accompanied by Billy Davidson (one of the finest Folk Guitarists today), Marie Boyd Trombone and Harmony and The Linconnaires a group long overdue the recognition they deserve. This is a disc to bring once and for all the talents of Matt McGinn to the fore and have him achieve universal recognition alongside the Folk Greats like, Guthrie, Seeger & Dylan.
