ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This journey of songs form a collection of work from my performances over the last few years where I have had great fun developing my music in different ways and with many talented musicians who have added to the arrangements with their own individuality and creativity.

I started to record this album shortly after performing as lead vocalist in ‘Laverock’s’ Scottish Song Show in the Fringe with Alasdair Morrison and Bill Crook; Bonnie Moorhen, Loch Lomond, Skye Boat Song. From there my next project was the ‘The Battle of Pots n Pans’ (the story of The Battle of Prestonpans) where ‘Laverock’ set about including Jacobite songs in a play specially written by BAFTA winning scriptwriter Andrew Dallmeyer for the Baron of Prestoungrange; Lady Gardiner’s Lament – a poem written by John Lindsay of Prestonpans and which I set to the old Burn’s melody, Lord Gregory. This also had a successful Fringe run. I had a further opportunity to work on another production for Homecoming Year in ‘The Mother of All Burns’ (It is a little known fact that Burn’s mother, brother and family lived only a few miles down the road from where I live in East Lothian where his brother Gilbert worked as factor on the Lennoxlove Estate). This production resulted in a collaboration with Gavin Pagan and Peter Fielding who I had recently met at Leitheatre whilst taking part in their Burns productions, and Aislinn Faulkner, a young clarsach player whom I had the good fortune to stumble upon whilst singing at a village Burns Supper in Morham that year; Now Westlin Winds, Killiecrankie. The inclusion of The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face and Wild Mountain Thyme come from the many performances as a soloist at weddings and special events. Recently, I have worked on some arrangements with Cathy Wood, Aislinn Faulkner and Johnny Gibbs; Wild Mountainside, Scarlet Tide, The Lea Rig and Ca’ The Ewes, the last of which has gone down very well at many a Burns Supper. The recording was completed by two of my good friends, Jenny Swan and Caroline Wright who join me with harmonies on Follow The Heron. I thank all the aforementioned who have given their time and talents and for all the many friends and family who have supported me during this project.

Special thanks to Ian McCalman and Alasdair Morrison for their support, guidance and ‘good ears’ during my time in the recording studio whilst producing this album.
