Angus Lyon & Ruaridh Cambell - 18 Months
A contemporary/traditional album that stands out from all the others because of the quality of the musicianship and the composing & arranging skills. Angus and Ruaridh are joined by five talented friends whose contributions round out the sound of Ruaridh's strings and Angus's keys. Gentle in tone, but strong in many qualities.
Angus Lyon (accordion, piano, Rhodes) and Ruaridh Campbell (fiddle, viola) with Duncan Lyall (double bass), Martin O'Neill (bodhran), Alan Train (electric guitar), Marc Duff (whistle) and J Simon Van Der Walt (trumpet, flugelhorn).
"A truly sensational recording from two of Scotland’s most exciting young musical innovators." (The Living Tradition)
