I'm writing from Ullapool in the North-West Highlands. I spent all of December writing and recording a brand new album of Scottish winter music - a re-run of my 2011 project 'Decemberwell' - Since it's been 10 years (I can hardly believe it!)
NEW MUSIC, NEW PLAYERS On the original Decemberwell, I played everything, fiddle, guitar, cittern, piano, percussion etc. To change things up, this time around I decided to play not a note, and invite these amazing guest musicians instead to add their own musicality and personality to my compositions.
DECEMBERWELL DECADE FEATURES Louis Abbot (drums) Philip Cardwell (trumpet) David Foley (flute) Donald Grant (violin) Signy Jakobsdottir (percussion) Kathleen MacInnes (Gaelic song) Sorren MacLean (guitars) Mairi MacLennan (Gaelic song) Joseph Peach (piano & accordion) Emma Smith (double bass)
CROWDFUNDER I've been running a crowdfunder campaign on indiegogo for the last 3 and a bit weeks. It ends on Saturday. What is a crowdfunder? It's basically a pre-order for the album, with a few added 'perks'. Available are - Digital downloads, CDs, Anniversary Bundles, Workshops and Tune Commissions and even a handmade guitar. What does it help pay for? 10 guest musicians who appear on the record, studio time in Glowormrecording in Glasgow and mixing/mastering/manufacture of CDs.
