Lilt - David Anderson

A couple of weeks back a debut album recording was released by David Anderson - fiddler.  Entitled Lilt, the album delivers a session feel.  I was lucky enough to play a few tunes with David over the summer so I great to hear on CD.  Here are my favourite tracks from the Album:

Land of the Standing Stones - album review

Our local fiddling master Paul Anderson launched his latest CD the Land of Standing Stones last month.  While Ienjoyed the whole album here is my short list of favourite tunes

An excellent mix of moving slow airs and lively up lift fiddle tunes.

I received my TribeSports half zip top yesterday. A community powered sports brand.  The product was funded via the website. A concept is they channel the communities feedback into a design team and then they cut out the middle business marketing to give you a top quality product at an affordable price. The product feels real great and the fit is good.  Not had it in full outdoor action yet.  Will act as a buffer layer between my skin / vest layer and an outer fleece.  Then I d complete the winter setup with a waterproof shell.  I d like to see the personalization go much further, user uploads their size measurements so we don't need to adhere to small , medium or large sizing and for features like zips, vents etc. some interactive options online so we can provide feedback on our personal preferences.  Overall, this concept is the future of sports clothing and for all clothing at that.

Caledonian Rainforest (Glen Tanar)

Last year I composed my first fiddle tune, its called,  Caledonian Rainforest (Glen Tanar)  A slow air.  Inspired by my many walks there and one day in particular when the mist was hugging the hills before a shaft of light broke through sparking of a few sprinkles of rain followed by a downpour.  I ve put together a video to go with the tune.  I recorded the tune on my fiddle with a headset so excuse the heavy breathing.
