Brave Hearts: New Scots Music is an 11-track collection of contemporary instrumental, worldbeat, and new age music with a Scottish lilt. Featuring artists like Leahy, Capercaillie, Dougie MacLean, Karen Matheson, Old Blind Dogs, Tannas, Skyedance, and Ashley MacIsaac, the album captures the spirit of Scotland and Scottish music in mythical terms -- this isn't pure Scottish folk music; it's the new age interpretation of what that term means. As a result, it's a little fuzzy in its intentions, but Brave Hearts remains good mood music for fans of this sound.
