The Halton Quartet tour has been going great. It’s been incredible hearing all the album tracks come to life on stage at the gigs. In other band developments we’ve installed an Xbox into the van and I can confirm the rumours that I am indeed still with undefeated Fifa 12 champion of the band!
I’ve also been loving playing with Blazin’ Fiddles over the last few months, Next up for the band is a trip out to the Festival Internacional do Mundo Celta de Ortigueira in Spain followed by another quick flight over to the Isle of Mann for the Yn Chruinnacht Celtic Festival next weekend.
Down at Grans House Studio I’m currently working on Anna Massie & Mairearad Green’s 2nd duo album. The girls have an incredible ability to apparently control the weather and every session they’ve done down here as coincided with a beautiful summers day. So much so that I’ve discovered another recording space in the studio, The decking! Great for recording accordions, not so great for background sheep noise.
