Capercaillie - Sidewaulk (1989 Scotland) @320

The album that brought Capercaillie to international prominence, Sidewaulk must be considered a classic, and a turning point for traditional Celtic music. This is the album that opened up a generation's ears to the perfect combination of tradition and youth.
Featuring the voice of Karen Matheson, the instrumental wizardry of Manus Lunny, with production by his famous brother Donal Lunny, Sidewaulk dared to take the music where it had never gone before.
