Themed around the poetry of William Soutar (1898-43) spanning an agelessness that chimes, singer-songwriter Debra Salem inhabits the words and the songs completely flow. Guitarist Kevin MacKenzie and pianist Paul Harrison, violinist/violist/cellist Patsy Reid, bassist Andrew Robb and percussionist Signy Jakobsdóttir join Salem.
