Megan wrote Incahoots for our talented artist friend, Claire Heminsley. Check her out! The Frenzy of the Meeting is a piece of Ceòl Mòr which has melodic connections with the Irish tune 'Brian Boru's March'. We sourced this excerpt from the Angus Mackay MS compiled c.1840.

Kinnaris Quintet alternates wonderfully between sweet warmth and rapturous joy. They accomplish what all good folk music aims at. It's very difficult to make an instrumental album of this length not start to all sound the same, but every track on Free One is so well constructed as to be chapters of a moving story, finally deeply satisfied by the conclusion of the title track. By jolts and false starts it alludes to brokenness without drowning in it. It's full of a realism that sees the ugliness of the real world and yet chooses joy, and this to me is what it truly means to be free. gripraven
