This pre-release deal is pretty special, being a 💯 self funded album... paid for without any funding or grant or anything other than my own money, a chance to help put this on the map!
by buying a pre-release copy which will include a special sneak preview download and the cd will then be posted to you signed of course on release day!
These pre-release sales will literally pay for the pressing and some of the album costs so if you like it’s a sort of mini crowd funding with a difference!
Only 100 of these copies will be available and I’ll let you know ASAP what the plan is re release, it’ll be no longer than a month though until you receive your cd & quite likely to be earlier and while you wait you can enjoy the bonus download of my version of Gerswin's classic "Lady be good"
This music was all recorded in one take during lockdown 2020 and is a selection of my favourite music 🎵 on guitar and some melodeon with some really special guests; Natalie MacMaster - fiddle, Donnell Leahy - fiddle, Michael McGoldrick - low whistle, flute, snare, Patsy Reid - strings, Tom Burnett - brass & Ross Ainslie - whistle & it was produced by young upcoming Scottish producer David Macfarlane whom also plays on the record.
It’s not a “folk” album in sense that it’s got 1 or 2 folk style tunes but it encompasses everything I love to play .. a trip to Paris for the classic musette "La Bourrasque" a duet with Canadian fiddle legend Donnell Leahy, Bee Gees "How deep is your love" with Scottish string lady of the moment Patsy Reid, Sting's classic "Fields of gold" a duet with Natalie MacMaster!, a beautiful haunting version of "Lily Marlene" with Irish flute legend Mike McGoldrick & much much more...from Irish to gypsy jazz to classical and all with a strong Celtic/jazz theme.
It’s an album I absolutely love... and it’s me and truly what I am about musically. It’s been delayed by the dreaded you know what and with non EU membership also that too sadly as all cds are pressed in the EU mostly, and certainly the best value ones!;)
