Stèidhichte sa Ghàidhealtachd bidh Cruinn a' tarraing ri chèile ceathrar de na seinneadairean Gàidhealach as fheàrr ann Alba an-diugh - Seumas Greumach, Fionnghail NicChoinnich, Brian Ó hEadhra is Raoghnaid Walker.
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.
Whoever came up with the idea of combining the talents of Rachel Walker, James Graham, Fiona Mackenzie and Brian Ó hEadhra into a group was brilliant. The group put on a smooth show for their debut performance. And what a debut! The harmonies these four manage are glorious. Strong vocal performances from all four are supported by Ó hEadhra on guitar or shruti box and Walker on accordion or piano... We wanted more!
