Background Information and Media Quotes

"A stunning display of how powerful tradition bearers can be presenting the experiences of people and the rich mythology of Scotland with a skill and unadorned passion for their cause."
live performance folkbluesnbeyond (2004)
"Two of Scotland's most passionate singers whose wealth of knowledge and experience of traditional song is legendary"

"Geordie's strong, bold style serve the robust outdoor themes excellently, but his versatility allows him to also address more tenderly, the more poignant"
Hector Christie (2003)
"What songs can do in this soulless, technological age, whether new or old is to show people that they matterÉ.. they can also get the sense of being rooted in a much wider cultural way, I believe that's what song does"
quote from The Scots Magazine article Deep Roots by Steve McGrail 2006
featuring Geordie and his songwriting.
"One of Scotland's treasures ... authority and general warmth to go with the depth of feeling that McMorland brings to traditional song. She really is a wonderful singer, with a great narrative sense as well as a sweetly deceptive strength, and she conveys genuine joy in singing whether on weighty, unaccompanied material or in rambunctiously celebrating the A83 with its landmarks familiar to any serial catcher of the Islay ferry."
live set at The Carrying Stream Rob Adams Herald 2006
"Alison McMorland ... demonstrated yet again that she is one of the most riveting interpreters of Lowland ballads."

Jim Gilchrist The Scotsman 2005
