Duncan McFarlane with Anne Brivonese
"Duncan has an obvious feel for the tradition and a deep-rooted belief that it has a place in the current folk scene, aspects which he puts across with lively showmanship.

"His own songs show a canny grasp of, and response to, the tradition, while his intrinsic seriousness of intent and approach is often laced with a healthy irreverence that happens to be hugely entertaining.

"To the already full sound of Duncan's own tremendous guitar playing, Anne Brivonese contributes excellent, sympathetic yet punchy fiddle.

"Supremely exciting playing without needing to act the show-off, her violin rolls out a carpet of sound over which the action ceaselessly capers.

"Standing serene at the centre of proceedings, adding elegant and exciting fiddle, Anne also gets a chance to show off her voice and a great voice it is too, contributing lovely supporting harmony vocals"
-- The Living Tradition

SUPPORT: Gus MacGregor
"It's lovely when singer-songwriters can actually sing and write songs ... Gus does both with effortless ease, combining aching lyrics with tender guitars and cotton wool percussion.

"There's alt-country overtones, folkish twists and bluesy roots, all pinned together by intelligent structures, subtle instrumentation, and the refreshing sense that he knows how you feel.

"His knack for an unusual metaphor, spine-tingling harmony or heart-breaking lyric won't let you go."
-- Nottingham Evening Post
