Jessica6 This is a stunner! A must-have for fans of Celtic music as it's meant to be heard: unrehearsed pick-up sessions in the living room. This is where musical miracles happen. Wonderful concept and unforgettable music! Favorite track: Two of Phil's Classics.

    Nae Plans Vol.1 The Highland Livingroom - on CD (+ instantaneous digital download of the tracks immediately following your purchase)

    A selection of 12 marvellous live studio recordings recorded in winter 2013.

    www.naeplans.co.uk

    Pianist/vocalist Hamish Napier (Back of The Moon, Man’s Ruin) and fiddler Adam Sutherland (Treacherous Orchestra, Session A9, Croft No. 5) join forces in a new and exciting album project called ‘Nae Plans‘.

    The concept was to record an album that was strictly unrehearsed (the pair barred any discussion between themselves about what tunes they would play or how they would arrange them). The material ranges from traditional songs and tunes, to contemporary numbers, to their own compositions and improv. The recordings capture the duos raw creativity and demonstrates their outstanding musical intuition. The live performances display a kind of electricity and excitement by the off-the-cuff nature and highlight every nuance. Each performance is unique and demonstrates the incredible talent of two of Scotland’s foremost musicians. As they allow themselves the freedom to experiment, ‘Nae Plans’ becomes ‘Nae limits’.

    Beautifully recorded by acclaimed engineer Barry ‘Spad’ Reid, this field-recording consists entirely of first-takes: nae edits, nae overdubs, nae qualms, nae plans, harking back to an older way of recording folk music in the spirit of folklorists such as Alan Lomax. The two folkies draw their inspiration from other musical styles present in their lives, and freely express this. Chaos, raw energy, outrageous risk-taking, delight, joy, aching poignancy and humour – all in abundance in a series of enthralling performances captured in a wee Highland cottage in the depths of winter.

Track Name: Ready to Go?
"Ready to go?"

"Aye".

[2 days of music ensues]
Track Name: Rabbie Luvs Jean 4eva
1788
Type: Song
Tune: Miss Admiral Gordon's Strathspey.
Of a' the airts the wind can blaw,
I dearly like the west,
For there the bonie lassie lives,
The lassie I lo'e best:

There's wild-woods grow, and rivers row,
And mony a hill between:
But day and night my fancys' flight
Is ever wi' my Jean.

I see her in the dewy flowers,
I see her sweet and fair:
I hear her in the tunefu' birds,
I hear her charm the air:
There's not a bonie flower that springs,
By fountain, shaw, or green;
There's not a bonie bird that sings,
But minds me o' my Jean.
[Footnote 1: Written during a separation from Mrs. Burns in their honeymoon.
Burns was preparing a home at Ellisland; Mrs. Burns was at Mossgiel.-Lang.]
