Fiona is keen that this album will appeal to all ages and tastes in music, not just those with an interest in Gaelic or traditional music. Whether your taste is for classcial carols; Ciuin an Oidhche (Silent Night), Anns an Dubhlachd Gheamhraidh (In The Bleak Midwinter), Country & Western, traditional Gaelic carols or rock, there will be something to suit. To achieve this, she managed to secure the services of Irvin Duguid to produce the album. Irvin, although brought up playing traditional fiddle in Macduff, now works in rock and musical theatre in Glasgow and throughout Britain, and brings a bright, fresh and very different flavour to the album whilst still respecting the tradition. He has persuaded some of the very best musicians from all over Scotland to guest on the album including, John Goldie, Ed Macfarlane, Jim Drummond, as well as Simone Welsh, Gary Innes, Ronan Martin and singers Maggie Macdonald, James Graham, Anna Massie, Hamish Napier and Fiona’s daughter Katie who also sings and plays clarsach. Capercaillie's Karen Matheson also guests on two tracks.
