Loch Lomond, and The Selkieand some lesser-known gems such as:
Sleep Soond I’da Moarnin’, Ghosts of Gight, and Dark Woman of the Mountains. The recording also features Kim’s arrangement of a section of Gustav Holst’s

Additional selections include two compositions by Robert Burns, Ae Fond Kiss and Jamie, Come Try Me, and Robert Tannahill’s Are You Sleeping, Maggie?
