Ali Beag MacLeod and Kevin Macleod - Braes Of Badentarbat

One of the leading voices on mandolin in Scottish traditional music, Kevin Macleod along with Ali Beag MacLeod have released Braes Of Badentarbat, performed on melodeon, resonator guitar, strings and some nineteenth-century Gaelic poetry set to music.

Kevin Macleod is based in Edinburgh and is the banjo player with The Occasionals. He often returns to his family home in Coigach in Northern Scotland, where his friend Ali 'Beag' MacLeod is a respected local traditional accordionist.
