In early 1997 the band shipped their studio from Glasgow to a villa high in the Andalucian mountains to begin work on a new album. The band recruited Wilf Taylor and David Robertson on drums and percussion and in brought former BBC young musician of the year – the multi-talented Michael McGoldrick on pipes and whistles. The band once again raised their musical horizons even further incorporating contemporary grooves featuring the evocative African chants of Hijas del Sol and the vocal duo from Guinea. Keys tracks include ‘Inexile’ and ‘Hebridean Hale – Bopp’. This was the album of the year in both Folk Roots and Mojo.
