“A magical environment: The Cabrach, Strathbogie and Strathdeveron valleys. Uncovering places that were central to earlier settlers of the land – crofters, the Picts and the nameless peoples of deeper prehistory.
This music is inseparable from the flows of landscape change and the fusion of history and place”
(Gordon Noble – University of Aberdeen)
