Mountain Man BCB session

I said it at the time, and I’ll say it again. The Mountain Man session we had recently at BCB is one of the most beautiful sessions I’ve had the pleasure of being involved in.  You can hear it again here now.

I would like to find time to put all our sessions up on the blog for you to listen to again, but the reality is I don’t have time.  Others I have put up here in 2010 are The Duke & The King and Lawrence Arabia.  When I get time, I’ll put more up here too.

The BCB Sessions – Wed 6 October

Hi folks,

Another tasty serving for you – bigger and better than your average portion! Feeling like a very happy bun today because we’ve had Sparrow and the Workshop in to record a session and it went really well. They’re a lovely, lovely band and I can’t wait to bring you their tunes on a soft velvet cushion in the next week or two.  Thanks Alb for mixing the songs (…tune into Eclectic Mainline if you haven’t already dipped your toe in, Weds at 8pm).
