cd - £12.99


The West Mainland Strathspey And Reel Society were formed in 1953 when a few fiddlers, an accordionist and a pianist -9 in all, met in Stromness at the home of Billy Handcox, the leader. From that small group, over the years the society have continued to perform and expand. The 20 musicians who appear on this album are drawn from the present membership and their dedication can be heard in their performances throughout the album.
