"From the moment you put this recording on you're transported into the world of traditional Scots culture by one of its most able and enthusiastic exponents and swept bodily (it seems) into a night of music, dance, song, recitation, and laughter. Freeland's playing is superb - precise and controlled, and yet full of the emotion that typifies music at its best." - The Living Tradition

"...a full 70 minutes of fun and frolics. It's a hugely enjoyable listen. A final warning: listening may lead you to buy the accompanying books. I certainly did." - Stephen Dowds
