Our first release (1978) established Alison as the leading exponent of the largely unexplored field of Scottish harp. Her research, teaching and the album re-established a repertoire for the instrument in Scotland. This and her subsequent recordings form a definitive and essential base to any collection of Scottish harp.
MELODY MUSIC - The clarsach (Scottish harp) can never have had a better show case than this
THE GUARDIAN - Superbly played and well produced ... a gem.
