      The music is timeless, inspiring and very unique. Well done Mike, Fi and Mairead.!! The concert window was great when we live 60 miles away in a remote area. The only slight negative was the poor sound and visual quality( hence the 4 stars). The twitter window helped to make us feel part of a live performance. We think concert window is a great idea and it makes us want to see Mike and friends in a live venue at the earliest opportunity. Well done to all involved. Happy Christmas and All Good things in 2014. Iain and Gail

DecemberWell Live 2013

Award winning Composer Mike Vass takes his sounds of the Scottish winter on tour throughout Scotland in December 2013. DecemberWell was released in 2012 to rave reviews and Mike subsequently received the prestigious 'Composer of the Year' award at the MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards

DecemberWell was conceived during one sleepless night in October 2011, and culminated in the recording of Mike’s most ambitious project to date. He set out to write and record a full length album in one month, inspired by the Scottish Winter.

Mike's reputation as a composer has been growing steadily in 2013. He wrote and performed the soundtrack for Gavin Robinson's 'Hart's Desire' animation which recently received a Scottish Bafta, and 'Cavers of Kirkcudbright' (which won the inaugural Niel Gow composition award) has recently been recorded by artists from Scotland, Ireland, France and the USA.

-Alasdair Maclean, Scots Magazine

‘Decemberwell’ is an instrumental meander through various moods, all themed around the month of December; evoking the Caledonia frost and hail, the dark short freezing evenings, the Christmas lights and the warm inviting indoors.’
-Ian Fildes, AmericanaUK

-Alex Monaghan, The Living Tradition
