EP released on August 21 2019 features new music for the acoustic guitar (me) and double bass (Peter Lowit) - four hands, ten strings, and two bits of wood.
Title track, inspired by the music of Nick Drake and the Annual Nick Drake Gathering, has a stunning string quartet arrangement by James Edge. Other tunes have folky themes, jazzy chords and renaissance rhythms. You can watch us in the studio here.
Tracks have featured on jazz, folk and roots internet radio programmes across the UK.
Working in this duo format, we are grateful to stand on the shoulders of giants - Danny Thompson & John Martyn, Ron Carter & Jim Hall, Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen & Joe Pass, Charlie Haden & Pat Metheny. I was very moved by an unexpected phone call from Danny Thompson when I sent him a copy of the EP as a way of saying thank you for the inspiration.
Launched at the event Lowit & Garrett at the Acoustic Music Centre (Fringe Venue 138) as part of the 2019 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
