‘Shore to Shore’
13 tracks of original songs and music
to be released 7th July 2018
We have just finished recording a new CD at Watercolour Music
in the Scottish Highlands.
and will have advance copies with us for our US West Coast tour Aril/May 2018.
This is our second CD as a duo, with a mixture of new songs and instrumentals,
many focusing on our Scottish connections around the world,
each with a story, and most of all about people and histories of the past and present.
Scotland is a small nation, but its people have a big heart,
and reach out beyond themselves worldwide.
Advance orders of CD’s/downloads with a complimentary free track at time of order
are available from us now on our website, and at
iTunes, Amazon UK, US and Digital, Spotify, www.birnamcd.com
Fortunately, people seem to really like what we do,
and ask what kind of music we perform.
The answer is not one genre or another, but a blending of
everyone and everything we have met along the way.
A coming together of both our musical journeys, combined into one together,
with elements of our respective musical backgrounds in
Celtic, Classical, Traditional, Contemporary Music and all else.
But most of all our music is about people,
and all those who have influenced us and inspired us along the way.
On this new CD we are joined by the very best musical companions and friends.
We also especially owe sincere thanks to Nick Turner, Mary Ann Kennedy, and Rycote
at the wonderful Watercolour Music for their enthusiasm, musical and technical skills,
and most of all for their encouragement and support yet again
in the creation of this CD album.
And of course equally we want to thank all the wonderful people around the world
who have supported us and our music along the way.”
We hope you enjoy them, take them, sing, play and share them yourselves.

We are delighted to be returning by request for our fourth West Coast tour in Northern California in April and May 2018.
A series of 11 concerts including many venues we have played at before, who have asked us to return, and also a number of additional new ones.
You will find a full list on the “Gigs” page here on our website, together with all the contact details for tickets and where to find us.
2017 was difficult year for many of our friends in Northern California who lost so much in wildfires. We are deeply moved by the resilience and spirit of so many good friends we have made there in the course of our previous tours, and it will be an honour to play for you all again.
In addition we have some new venues including the famous Auburn House Concert Series which we have heard so much about, the highly regarded Back Room concert venue in Berkeley, a wonderful invitation to play at San Jose, and the amazing Casa Serrano Museum in Monterey, and others.
If you wish further information about any of this then please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Currently we are recording a new 13 track CD for release shortly. We have returned to the amazing Watercolour Music Studios at Ardgour www.watercolourmusic.co.uk where we are working with Mary Ann Kennedy and Nick Turner to produce what he believe could be our best CD to date. We are supported on that production by our great friends and musical companions of many years, Stevie Lawrence & Fiona Cuthill, Alasdair Robertson from the original Ideal Band, and bass/piano man Jim Lightbody from Loch Lomond.
Very excited about this one, and again distribution and all else will be managed for us by Mame Hadden and his team at Birnam CD www.birnamcd.com
In June last year we welcomed and played a short concert here for Harpist Sunita Staneslow, Fred Schlomka, and their party of international musicians and guests touring Scotland. From that has sprung an invitation for us to play a concert early next year at Pender Harbour Music Society on the Sunshine Coast Canada. A great honour and heralds our first tour in Canada which we are organising right now.
