After a time with the group Finn McCuill, a tour with poet Norman MacCaig and his work with the 7:84 Theatre Company, Nick Keir joined The McCalmans in 1982. He remained with the group for the next thirty years and toured all over the world as one of the best known and most successful Scottish traditional acts. In 2004 The McCalmans were inducted into the Scottish Traditional Hall of Fame and were presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award.

Nick also had a hugely successful solo career, including sell-out Edinburgh Festival Fringe shows. He recorded four critically acclaimed solo albums which received international airplay.

The thirty-seven tracks on this double CD are selected from his four solo albums: Rumours Of Snow, All Over This Town, Fishing Up The Moon and The Edge Of Night, plus tracks from The McCalmans albums he featured on. The album also includes sleeve notes from Nick’s closest friends.
