It’s Out!

A couple of years ago my English friend Chris complained that all my recordings had bands playing along and choruses singing harmonies and didn’t have what I presented at the London folk clubs: simple, well-chosen and relatively unfamiliar folk songs, with sparse concertina accompaniment. Hopefully he and others with similar tastes will enjoy this new one.  ~ Riggy

Mark Walbridge, my close friend and musical peer for 55 years, has released a sterling album, upon which I was delighted to play concertina. Kudos to Zan McLeod for his most tasteful production work.

I played concertina on Urge for Going in this new recording of songs from Canadian songwriters by exquisite California singer Kate Price.
