"The Lucky Smile", supported by the Scottish Arts Council, is the eagerly awaited follow up to Rachel's highly acclaimed solo album "Hubcaps and Potholes".

Produced by respected musician Angus Lyon, the album features Rachel's trio of harp with acoustic guitarist Paul Tracey and double bassist Andy Sharkey, along with guest appearances including Gaelic singer Joy Dunlop, jazz violinst Graham McGeoch, drummer Scott Mackay and percussionist Paul Jennings.

With an eclectic mix of traditional and contemporary material, tinged with influences from genres ranging from jazz and funk to classical and bluegrass and her Scots-Irish heritage, "The Lucky Smile" showcases the harp as a lead band instrument allowing its vibrance and vitality to shine through with sparkle and poise.
