Caught up with Arthur Johnstone and the Stars Band at the fantastic Girvan Folk Festival at the weekend AND :-
Vintage Laggan (Recorded at the Edinburgh Folk Club 197666—77) Featuring Arthur Johnstone / John McDermott / Tony Patton / Billy Paton – CD just released
A fantastic look back to they Laggan in the 70’s ! with the songs we are all still singing ! My thanks to Arthur and Rosetta for getting the CD to me.
Drever McGuire Young – The Return of The Shoestring Orchestra !– from Orcadian Recordings Ivan Drever / Frank McGuire and Rich Young
Great new album! The song selection is promising: I love the blend of vintage folk, blues and soul, with a few instant hits! The trio complement each other very well, this is comfort music, sounds like it was made by guys who seem to be chilling with friends, which it is perfect for.
