This is the second album by Maeve MacKinnon, the Associate Gaelic Artist for the National Theatre of Scotland, and it comes five years after her acclaimed debut Don't Sing Love Songs.
Even if you don't understand a word of the Gaelic songs on the album, the beauty of MacKinnon's voice and the sterling musicianship of the band enables the listener to appreciate what an important feature of Scottish life this poetic language is.
Mixed in are traditional songs including Maeve's own rendition of the Ewan MacColl favourite The Father's Song.
Maeve's strong socialist roots shine through with her plea for social justice in the Middle East and an end to the senseless arms race particularly appealing.
MacKinnon's voice is from the angels and she's blessed too with assured musicianship and considerable songwriting and arranging abilities.
