This is the 4th offering of Windy Gyle Band’s menagerie of sound! It was recorded mainly in the Hooky Mat studio but we have not abandoned the front room tradition completely – this time rooms at Frenchgate Richmond and Hedchester Law (Northumberland) were pressed into service. Anthony’s solo pipe tracks were recorded in the spectacular space at St Cuthbert’s Chapel, Ushaw College, Durham.

The Band continues to celebrate its 6-decade-spread of musicians and to thrive, despite meeting up only occasionally for invariably enjoyable musical stramashes. As with earlier albums we have an impressive list of friends joining us to lift the tone and enhance variety, and we hope there is something to please all tastes in this music smorgasbord.
