Their new studio album was launched in the autumn of 2020. Hailing from the Isle of Skye, the legendary Scottish trailblazers have created a glorious mixture of traditional sounds and dance-floor grooves that have been embraced worldwide.

Their mainly instrumental music allows the band to develop exciting themes and soundscapes, as well as locking into their trademark hypnotic Celtic Dance sound that no-one can resist moving to!

Tessa is a young, brilliant barrister. She has worked her way up from working class origins to be at the top of her game; defending; cross examining and winning. An unexpected event forces her to confront the lines where the patriarchal power of the law, burden of proof and morals diverge.

Justin Martin directs this solo tour de force, captured live from the intimate Harold Pinter Theatre in London's West End. A production from Empire Street Productions.
