Just As It Was

When listening recently to these ‘archive’ recordings of Alasdair and Muriel playing for Scottish Country Dance Balls over a period of almost 15 years (1989 – 2003) what strikes immediately is the joy and exuberance in the playing. Alasdair is the unrivalled master of bringing tunes alive and of communicating their rhythm, excitement and glorious melody to a vast crowd of dancers. In harness with Muriel, contributing her own incredible drive, inventiveness and love of the dance, this fabulous duo invites, incites and woos you into the exhilarating experience of marrying dance and music.
