Ciaran’s guest ‘castaway’ on his Sunday Session this week will be Dave Shaw from the Perthshire-based Americana band Red PineTimber Co. (pictured).
Formed in the summer of 2009, Red Pine Timber Co. originally set out as a ‘loose’ collective of musicians led by former Southpaw singer-songwriter and guitarist Gavin Munro.
Playing an eclectic mix of Americana and Country influenced originals they have developed their unique sound within this genre mostly due to the inclusion of saxophone within the instrumentation. Coupled with the somewhat contrasting musical backgrounds and talents of each band member, the combination blends tastefully in supporting songwriter Munro.
Red Pine Timber Co. are currently in the studio writing and recording their forthcoming debut album, aiming to set a release date sometime in the first half of 2012.
