Dileab Ailean: The Legacy of Allan MacArthur, with 2 CDs (based on 40 years of archive recordings from the one family), Grace Note Publication, Ochtertyre, 2009.

This book discusses the history and traditions of a community of Scottish Gaels who emigrated from the Isle of Canna and Moidart in the nineteenth century and settled in the Codroy Valley, Newfoundland. Based on fieldwork recordings from 1969 to 2007, the book and double CD production celebrates four generations of the remarkable MacArthur family whose vibrant Scottish Gaelic traditions of song and music both endured and evolved through each generation to the present day.
