This second CD of the compilation is even more awesome than the first; modern music styles mix with traditional to show the glory of Scottish culture and history. Faves: 3,4,5,6,10,11,12,15, 16, 17 No FCC's

1-4:10 – Brucie and the Troopers; very fast pipe and guitar tune

2-4:55- “I'm Gonna Do It All”; nice vocals and lyrics in English from Karine Polwart

*3-2:56 – slow air -- Alasdair and Paul Machlis fiddle tune; nice modulation

*4-3:34- “Scots Wha Hae” vocal by Isla St. Clair in Socts English – fierce and rousing w/drums&pipes

*5-3:49- fast pipe and drums tune, “Just for Seamus” – unusual and percussive

8-5:13- electronica with English spoken word inserts about Scotland mixed with Gaelic; bits of harp

9-2:42- a capella version of “The Tryst” in Scots English; traditional style; clapping applause at end

*11-3:42- soulful Gaelic singing by Ishbel MacAskill accompanied by Celtic harp

*12-7:36- “Proud to Play a Pipe,” scions of piper dynasties show how it's done

13- 4:07- Shetland fiddler Aly Bain plays “The Day Dawn” – evocative
