“I spent the first half of my life in Ayrshire, Scotland, and the second half of my life [so far] in Co Donegal, Ireland.  The influence and significance of both have played a major part in making me who I am and what I do. The music and songs on this album are due in part to those influences and is my “Celtic Connection”.  I hope it resonates with you.”  Ian Smith

Ten years in the preparation, Restless Heart employs the production skills of Ian’s near neighbour, Capercaillie’s Manus Lunny, to the full and the Capercaillie connection is maintained by the presence of the band’s Donald Shaw, James Mackintosh and Karen Mathieson. There are also guest spots for Ted Ponsonby’s atmospheric dobro, the Japanese harmonica player Hiroshi Yamaguchi and one of Donegal’s best young fiddle players, Stephen Campbell (a man who should be coerced into recording his own solo album), while backing vocals are supplied by Declan O’Rourke and Mags Gallen.

Ian Smith and Stephen Campbell, two Scottish-born musicians, both reside in and about this area and over the last fifteen years or so have become two of the most prominent faces on the Donegal music scene (and both are regulars at the famed Monday night session at Húdaí Beag’s). Keadue Bar’s eleven tracks alternate between songs and instrumentals and is graced by a remarkable sense of relaxation, which one perhaps should expect from two musicians at ease with their craft.
