New music for the acoustic guitar (me) and double bass (Peter Lowit) - four hands, ten strings, and two bits of wood.
The title track, inspired by the music of Nick Drake and the Annual Nick Drake Gathering, has a shimmering string quartet arrangement by James Edge. You can watch us in the studio recording other tunes here.
Positive reviews include those from FATEA, folking and Jazz Journal . Tracks have featured on some twenty jazz, folk and roots internet radio programmes from across the UK, including BBC Radio Ulster - Caschlár: A World of Music and BBC Radio Scotland - Jazz Nights.
We are grateful for the blessings of Danny Thompson (who rang me one day when I was putting the bins out) and The Estate of Nick Drake. We have also been inspired by acoustic duos such as Charlie Haden & Pat Metheny or Gary Peacock & Ralph Towner.
Launched at Acoustic Music Centre during the August 2019 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
