Clar air leth bho bhall de theaghlach ainmeil Abrach le taghadh de cheòl - traidiseanta agus ùr - cho math ri òran brèagha bho Mhaighread Stiùbhart.

This is Allan Henderson's first solo album and what a cracker it is.

Allan comes from Mallaig, and has been playing fiddle and pipes from a very young age. He was taught by the left-handed Lochaber fiddler, Angus Grant. He has played with many bands over the years, was a founder member of Blazin’ Fiddles and is demand as a producer. He also teaches and was involved in shadow writing the autobiography of Highland music legend, Fergie MacDonald.  He currently works on the music courses provided by Lews Castle College UHI from their Benbecula campus.

This album has taken some time to complete. As Allan himself writes: "This CD was only supposed to take a month to record, and ended up taking two years from start to finish. In fact, it is at this point that I should maybe offer a word of warning to all ‘would-be’ producers. When I started this project my co-producer, Iain MacDonald, and I were good friends. He is now my brother in law and I am the Godfather of his second child. There is nothing much more to say, other than I hope you enjoy the music."
