SWEPT AWAY
Stevenson Productions (SP122284) May 2005



The best exhibition to date of Smithfield Fair's ability to merge traditional songs and new original works with passion and warmth and energy, this album also features exquisite playing from the great Scottish fiddler John Taylor. Continuing on with the band is guitarist/co-producer J. David Praet and, once again, stalwart support on bass, vocals and percussion from Bob Smith. A chance once more to close your eyes and return to the Highlands as Smithfield Fair continues its forward motion.
