With all band members hailing from the Hebridean Isles of Tiree and South Uist, the music and culture that they were raised in remains a pure and refreshing trademark in the sound of Trail West. Rescattermastered represents the next step on the journey for this exciting west coast quartet.

With special guests including Runrig’s Malcolm Jones and iconic Gaelic singer Kathleen MacInnes, this is an album that celebrates everything that is great about traditional music in Scotland and the appreciation that young musicians have for the tradition and culture that has helped to shape their lives.

As with the band’s first release (‘The One That Got Away’, 2013),

Rescattermastered demonstrates the incredible musicianship of frontline pair Seonaidh MacIntyre and Ian Smith through high-energy tunes and arrangements, accompanied by the multi-instrumental talents of Andrew Findlater and Alain Campbell. In addition to this, a wide selection of songs now highlight the development and maturity of a band leading the thriving scene of ‘Glasgow Gaels’ ensuring that traditional music in Scotland has a very strong future.
