Album Notes
The current Albanach Duo formed in 2010 they are Russell Ballantine and Paul Devery.

Both are experienced performers having played in various bands, quartets and trios for many years.

Having opened for the likes of Dick Gaughan, Duck Baker and Michael Marra the duo are now starting to make a name for themselves. Using nylon and steel string guitars and the dobro for slide playing the duo create imaginative instrumental arrangements of traditional fiddle, pipe, harp and song melodies taken from different regions of the celtic world.The repertoire can also include works by Scottish composers such as John Maxwell Geddes and Peter Maxwell Davies. Music with a Scottish connection always features prominently from early works associated with musicians of the Scottish royal courts to trad tunes and works by contemporary Scottish composers.

"Beautiful recording, Lots of variety, some surprisingly apt slide playing, and arrangements." -- Rob McKillop

"Beautiful music…..very accomplished playing" -- Iain Anderson, BBC radio Scotland
