The Occasionals ceilidh band started in 1986, featuring a number of great musical friends. Over time it naturally distilled into the quartet of musicians heard here on this, their seventh recording: Freeland Barbour, Ian Hardie, Kevin MacLeod and Gus Millar.
This album is a celebration of 25 years of playing dances at many different occasions, and the band has included some old classics, lesser known gems from Jimmy Shand and Bobby MacLeod, and a good few new ones from Freeland.
