(NB: If you're reading this on Facebook, you can read this post in full on my blog). You might know that my brother Graeme and I are continuing our amateur-acoustic-old-fashioned-Ulster-Scots-gospel-music efforts by launching our new CD - Soda Farls and Redemption Songs - this Friday night, up at McKee's Country Store and Restaurant in the Craigantlet Hills - it's an open invitation evening, starting at 7.30.
The music will last for about 45min to an hour and will be divided equally into two parts - us playing songs from the CD for half of the evening, and good communal singing from "Redemption Songs" for the other half. McKee's are going to leave the restaurant tables in position, and wlll be serving tea and shortbread to your table throughout the evening. During the singing their bakers will be making the soda bread, which will be served fresh and warm to your table at the end of the music! You can listen to some samples from the CD here.
The cd (shown here - click to enlarge) will be on sale for £10.00. We've worked hard on the packaging and booklet - the CD even has a soda farl printed on it! It should be available in the usual shops over the next few weeks, but we're also selling direct - you can place an order by clicking on "Buy The CD" here. Hope to see you on Friday evening - music starts at 7.30!
