Fa leth bidh gach seinneadair faighinn cliù is meas, agus mar Cruinn, bidh iad a' cruthachadh ceòl binn is tlachdmhòr; a' seinn òrain Gàidhlig bho dhualchais is òrain a sgrìobh iad fhèin. Fàilte dhan làrach againne.

The Gaelic song quartet Cruinn – James Graham, Fiona Mackenzie, Rachel Walker and Brian Ó hEadhra – stunningly affirmed their supergroup credentials with both sublimely complementary vocals and spine-tingling contemporary reinventions of ancient material, together with beautifully crafted originals.
Strong clear melodies and beautifully full and mellow harmonies characterise Cruinn. (They) surpass expectations and provide a superb example of Gaelic song in the modern age.
