At long last the new album from Duncan and Cy was released on Greentrax Recordings (CDTRAX398) on 1st July.
Featuring six new songs from Duncan and Cy, one reimagining of their long-established favourite ‘The Surf and the Silver Fishes’ and six carefully-chosen covers, the album has been incredibly well-received, and is without doubt the strongest release so far.
As always, the album features virtuoso playing by some of the very finest traditional musicians to be found anywhere, all friends as always. Duncan, Cy and Jim are joined by :
Stevie Lawrence : guitar, bodran, percussion, sitar, mandocello, bouzouki, cittern.
Chris Stout : fiddle, viola and piano
Catriona McKay : Scottish Harp
Finlay Macdonald : highland and small pipes, whistles.
Ray Laidlaw : percussion.
Kathleen Macinnes : guest vocals and backing vocals.
Rab Noakes : guest vocals and backing vocals
Jim Jack : backing vocals
Fraser Speirs : harmonica, blues harp.
Sandy Brechin : accordion
Paul Savage : drums
Kristan Harvey : fiddle
Land of Gold was co-produced by Cy, Duncan and Paul Savage, and recorded, mixed and mastered by Paul Savage at Chem 19 Studios, Blantyre between March and June 2018.
