BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards winner of the Horizon Award delivers his second album confirming his position as a performer of real class.

Ewan McLennan released his debut album in 2010 and by the end of the year had been nominated for and later won the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, Horizon Award for the best newcomer. In the Fatea Music Awards he was named 'Best Male Vocalist of the Year. Of his first album the critics noted:

"A gorgeous lilting voice, a quietly assured and commending presence and some smart guitar arrangements" - Q

"The entire album in an unalloyed delight" - R2

"The album does reveal McLennan's great promise" - Scotland On Sunday

"This truly is a collection of captivating songs delivered in fine voice by Ewan and is sure to catapult him to the top of the folk music class" - Maverick

Ewan now delivers his second album: mainly himself as before with just a little embellishment from John McCusker, Karine Polwart, Martin Simpson and Laurence Blackadder. Amongst his classy interpretations of traditional songs are two of his own compositions with 'The Last Bird To Sing' being particularly outstanding and worthy of being hailed as the song of the year. With much to live up to Ewan has delivered a class album.
