It’s somewhat of an understatement to say I am hugely proud to be involved with the long-awaited (and much overdue) CD by my musical mentor, maker of my fiddle and old friend Paul Archer. The CD features tunes mainly composed by Paul and features contributions from other well known North-Eastern traditional musicians Martin Matthews, Norman Holmes, Gerry Kaley, Jim O’Boyle and Tom Gilfellon.
As well as being a fine player and composer Paul also makes fabulous instruments – find more out about them at Archer Guitars – you can probably get a hold of a copy of the CD there too. Happy Days!
Here’s an interesting album which I had the pleasure to record a couple of tracks for last year in Russia.
The brainchild of Denis Rozov – voice, guitar and mandolin; Boris Rubekin – whistle, flute, piano, keyboards, and Andrew Bayramov – bodhran, djembe, congas, cajon, shaker, tambourine. cymbals.
