About Evenin's Fa':
It's a thing of great beauty. This is heartfelt, understated, unpretentious singing. Worn and weathered tweed. Beautiful and honest. I've found a clutch of Scott's own songs deeply moving... it's such a beautiful album
The CD is wonderful. It is folk music at its best. I love all the songs, I love the arrangements. It is filled with love...a beautiful performance and recording
...a genuine heartfelt performance on every song from that big old voice... Great songs. Great album. Scott doesn't just sing, he resonates. A voice in a million
Scott's voice is craggy, manly, time-worn and warm. The songs on this album are deceptively simple yet profound, lingering in your head. They juxtapose deftly described Scottish landscapes with deep human emotion. The songs are tenderly accompanied by guitar, fiddle, viola, accordion, mouth-organ, banjo and vocal ensemble
This is a beautifully-produced thoughtful album. There's a naturalness about it and a welcome simplicity of arrangement which gives it a special quality...a real person singing about real life
What a marvellous instrument is Scott's voice – this is a true gem of an album, impeccably presented, recorded and packaged
...the honesty of it, the sense of place hit home to me. I love the design and the stories, the general thoughtfulness yet unfussy nature of it all. Great job
It is beautiful, warm, heartfelt and full of laughter and tears
It's the best music ever
