ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Dale McGregor and Friends

This is my first solo album. It turned out to be an eclectic mix of different genres of music –country, bluegrass, old timey, rock and rockabilly and spiritual pieces. They are mainly original pieces with a few favourite cover songs thrown in just because they are great old tunes. If you ever heard me play, you would discern quickly that I love a variety of musical styles so it was kind of natural that this album would end up as it did – selections across the musical spectrum.

First and foremost, I would like to thank our Lord and Father once again for providing me with the inspiration and the energy to get through all the work of composing and producing this album. It started off as a one song project with “A Little Message” to speak for the unborn who don’t have a voice to defend themselves and the project grew from there. More songs just seemed to spring up and so they were added to the album.

To say that it is a solo album is a bit of a misnomer. On my musical journey, I have played with an amazing variety of talented musicians – many of whom I am proud to call friends as well. So I asked several new and old friends from different styles to play with me starting with some of my family members. I would like to acknowledge and thank them all. On this album, you will hear the stylings of Peter Kilgour (engineer and guitar and other instruments/vocals), Christopher McGregor (lead fiddle), Nichole McGregor (lead fiddle), Patrick McGregor (composer and guitar), Margaret Martin (dobro), Keith Hubbard (flat picking guitar), Michael Creber (piano), Teresa Storwick (lead vocals), Kate E. Hess (lead vocals) Trent Bruner (score transcription), and back up vocal singers from local choirs - Myrt Armstrong, Helen Murray, Gwyneth Jones, Terry Stewart, Lee Taylor and Sheila Gioloto. So the “friends” part of the title of the solo album is quite accurate. And when you make music with friends and family, the product can’t be anything other then marvellous, heartfelt and special.

And you’ll find the songs a bit longer then usual. Sometimes it takes just so many notes and words to tell the story and that was the case in this album. The result is when you get up from the song table, you’ll be completely full – none of that leaving the musical table hungry in this album!
