seems like it was in another age that Christine and I first came together to record ‘101
Reasons to do Nothing’ – it was in fact ten years ago. This new
album is nothing more or less than a collection of tunes that we enjoy playing. Many are very simple melodies that
have survived hundreds of years and will hopefully continue to be played throughout the generations.
We are both very fortunate to have played music with some incredible people over the years. On this recording we're
joined by two of the very best – Brian McAlpine on piano and Tim Edey on guitar and box. The album was recorded
in three days, around four mics, in the beautifully atmospheric surroundings of the Harbinson’s Steadings in Morayshire.
Many thanks to Rod and Beth Harbinson for their generous hospitality. Many thanks to Charlie Webster for rescuing
the cello. Huge thanks to the talent and spirit of Tim Edey and Brian McAlpine.
Recorded January 2011 at The Steadings, Morayshire
