The first release from Smithfield Fair sets the tone for the unique interwoven vocal style of the group. Smithfield Fair takes traditional material and polishes it with a contemporary freshness. Critics consistantly praise the group's ability to balance traditional material with original compositions so that the listener takes a dream-like journey to the Highlands of Scotland, never certain whether the accompanying song is hundreds of years old or written last week. The tight vocals are accompanied by acoustic guitars, mandoline, tin whistle, bagpipes, bodhran, piano and other voices. The general atmosphere of this album is a dreamy holiday in the Hebrides and many native Scots have commented how strongly the music moves them.
