Re: Off the Hook

Released in 2018. I really like this album, I mostly like the tunes and I’m not a big fan of songs, but in this case there are only three songs and I quite enjoy Aaron’s singing.

I’m missing 5 tunes from the list as I don’t have the sleeve nots and can’t find the names. I will update it as soon as I find out what those names are.

Musicians:
- Alistair McCulloch (fiddle)
- Aaron Jones (bouzouki, guitar, vocals)
- Marc Duf (whistles, recorder track #9, bodhran track #4).

From MusicScotland.com:

After many requests The Alistair McCulloch Trio have finally recorded a studio album.

Featuring champion fiddler McCulloch of Coila and the Iain Cathcart Scottish Dance Band, alongside past Scottish folk musician of the year, Aaron Jones of Old Blind Dogs and the Kate Rusby Band, on bouzouki, guitar and vocals and former Capercaillie whistle wizard Marc Duff, the trio has gained a formidable reputation for its dynamic concert performances.

From driving reels and jigs to tender airs and expressive songs, Off The Hook perfectly encapsulates the feel of their live shows. Blending traditional, contemporary and self-penned material the album showcases the combined talents of three of Scotland’s most respected and established traditional musicians.

The Alistair McCulloch Trio annual summer Scottish tour has become a firm fixture on the folk music calendar.

"This has been a project we have been discussing for quite some time and we are all delighted that we have finally captured our live sound in the studio. We are really excited to see how the album will be received." Alistair McCulloch.
