New album The Hills of Arran

My sixth album The Hills of Arran is now available for order.  and impressively varied in genre and production style’, ‘the more I hear the songs the more enjoyable they are’ and ‘hauntingly beautiful’. A critic from Rock Society has said:

‘The evocative and delicate acoustic performances are a delightful and blessed relief from the current trend for over-produced, overloaded layers of music. A breath of fresh, mellow and unpretentious folk air.’

Here is the video for the title track, featuring Myke Clifford on wooden flutes.

Cambridge News ran a feature about one of the songs, White crosses. Last week I played some of the songs live on the second half of Cambridge 105’s and-john-ewan-and-huddie-261115/” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”>Strummers and Dreamers show.
