Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rodney Batdorf
Brave Hearts: New Scots Music is an 11-track collection of contemporary instrumental, worldbeat, and new age music with a Scottish lilt. Featuring artists like Leahy, Capercaillie, Dougie MacLean, Karen Matheson, Old Blind Dogs, Tannas, Skyedance, and Ashley MacIsaac, the album captures the spirit of Scotland and Scottish music in mythical terms -- this isn't pure Scottish folk music; it's the new age interpretation of what that term means. As a result, it's a little fuzzy in its intentions, but Brave Hearts remains good mood music for fans of this sound.

    Vibrant!

    My favorite Celtic compilation album of all! I don’t think I could describe “Brave Hearts” any better than its back cover: “Proud, passionate, provocative--keeping tradition alive by refusing to let it stand still …” Full of energy, bounce and spirit, all the numbers on this CD, both lively and driving or poignant and slow, have an intensity about them that just sweeps over you. The featured artists are: Leahy, Capercaillie, Blair Douglas, Mary Jane Lamond, Ashley MacIsaac, Dougie MacLean, Karen Matheson, Old Blind Dogs, Anna Murray, Skyedance and Tannas. It’s hard to pick a favorite track or two here--I like every one, though Blair Douglas and Leahy really shine. Come along and celebrate the spirit and mystique of Scotland with these innovative new musicians! If you like “Brave Hearts”, you’ll also enjoy the up-tempo music of another compilation CD, Green Linnet’s “Playing With Fire”.
