The solo album, "A Scottish Legacy", is a wonderful manifestation of the guitarist’s close connection to a tradition with roots in Celtic fingerstyle guitar. Melrose has plunged into the refinements and details of this music, and most of all, he has studied the ornamentations of the fiddler. The album comprises sixteen impressive songs, Ian’s favorites, which he plays on his Lowden steelstring and a Continental Resonator guitar. “A Scottish Legacy” exhibits virtuosic performing culture, clever harmonies and beautiful melodies. The guitarist’s Scottish heritage presents itself here in magnificent mood pictures, performed with charm and full of nuances. When Melrose reaches for his slide guitar, a sweet melancholy surfaces. His music is both serene and self-confident, sensitive and expressive at the same time. Ian’s own comment: "With this recording I would like to express my respect and fascination for this grand and lively tradition.” After hearing this CD, the listener will have no doubt that he has succeeded right down the line.
