A’ the way to Galloway is an album of traditional songs and tunes from a part of Scotland whose music deserves wider recognition. Singer and fiddler Jo Miller leads a group of fine musicians with close connections to the area: Dalry fiddler Amy Geddes, Wigtownshire singer Robyn Stapleton, Jo’s son Neil Sutcliffe on piano, concertina and accordion, and her husband Steve Sutcliffe on bass concertina.

Together, they perform older repertoire including Braes o Galloway – thought to be the source of the well-known Gallowa Hills – along with more recent compositions such as Buchts o Knockreoch about a local sheep clipping. This music has thrived in intimate environments like homes, rural schools and small halls, and the musical arrangements and performances on the album recreate that intimacy.
