From the first thrilling burst of Highland piping to the power of four men’s voices joined in harmony, The Tannahill Weavers Collection portrays the last ten years of this dynamic Scottish quintet. The selections, culled from the Tannies' last five albums, including award-winning Capernaum, were selected and arranged by the band, supplemented by extensive liner notes and lyrics. A leading force in Scotland’s traditional music scene for nearly 20 years, The Tannahill Weavers play music as "the pure drop": robust, vital, stately, the hardy frame of a tune cleanly heard in their stirring arrangements.
The Tannahill Weavers Collection includes the beautiful Scottish anthem "Wild Mountain Thyme," and Robert Burns’ fiery "Hieland Harry," plus sparkling instrumentals that quicken with flutes and fiddle, motored by machine-gun bouzouki and guitar. Sets of strathspeys and reels showcase the tremendously talented pipers that have played with the band, including Iain MacInnes, Kenny Forsyth, and their current young piper, Duncan Nicholson.
For new listeners seeking a vibrant introduction to traditional Scottish music, and long-time Tannahill Weavers fans, The Tannahill Weavers Collection captures a band as vital today as at any time in its history.
