Old and new Scottish and Cape Breton tunes performed by a young Scottish fiddler with accompaniment by Pat Ballantyne on piano, Iain Richardson on pipes, and others.
I’d like to hear this….
I met Calum about 4 years ago - a very fine fiddler, who was in New Zealand last I heard. Pat and Iain play regularly at the "Blackfriars" session in Aberdeen on a Thursday night. Given that they are all very much into the Cape Breton style, this will definitely be worth a listen.
Never thought I’d see the day I had an album or some of my tunes on thesession.org!
Chuffed to bits. My playing can be a bit ropy but the feeling is there.
Had a lot of fun recording the album with pat, Iain, Alastair MacDougall, Andy and Kirsty Lawrence and Andy walker.
Andy and Kirsty do a yearly gig with tour bus fortune at speyfest and are Aberdeens best kept secret.
Alastair MacDougalls version of Peggy Gordon is a fav. Done in one take walked in and out, proper efficient. You can find him most Tuesdays with the legendary Paul Anderson at the aberdeen arms.
This album is dedicated to the honest working man. To people who’ve had to struggle to survive in a world gone mad and most of all to attempted suicide survivors and those whose spirits stay with us through their music such as Gordon Duncan.
Glad you were happy to see the album on here, Calum! Grin.
