Smalltalk, 2002

This is a great Scottish recording by Iain MacInnes, Stuart Morison, and Billy Ross. Many will know Iain MacInnes from BBC radio.

The players include, Billy Ross (vocals, guitar, dulcimer); Chris Barr (vocals, guitar, keyboards); Lou Demme (vocals, drums); Cy Jack, Frank Demme (vocals); Iain MacInnes (whistling, small pipes, bodhran); Carl Johnson (guitar); Stuart Morrison (cittern, fiddle, bodhran)

There are some nice traditional session tunes here and anyone looking for Scottish smallpipes should check it out.


I don’t know where "2002" comes from, and also some of the musicians listed above. I have this recording on cassette tape, and it was recorded and released in 1994. The only guest musician listed is Cy Jack who recorded and co-produced it and contributes harmony vocals on the final track.
So which tracks feature Chris Barr, Lou Demme, Frank Demme and Carl Johnson, "bob_piper" ?
