Well folks, here we are a few weeks away from the album release date! It’s all very exciting but a little confusing also, having never released an album before – you realise what a mine field it is to navigate – online distribution commisions – different entities that need setting up- lots of behind the scenes stuff – now I know why people do charity races instead! But it is an interesting learning curve – and one that should come in handy down the line for other projects…
I’m from Tarland in Aberdeenshire which is a small village on the edge of the Cairngorm National Park. I went to Tarland primary school and then went on to Aboyne Academy. Started working on the family farm upon leaving school but started playing the fiddle professionally in 1998 after playing semi professionally for a number of years. As well as performing, composing and teaching traditional Scots fiddle music I also give lectures and talks on the subject.
Delane Morrison-Wallace, 38 (3 days older than Kevin but evidently had a much easier paper round). Made my living as a retro-night DJ until my second child was born (9 years ago – eek!). Still occasionally dabble behind the decks but mostly I’m a mum and Avon lady now. Been playing music for fun all my life – my Dad, Garry, played in the sessions too. Been performing with Carey and Jen Lunan (also in the sessions) for a few years now under various guises – last year we were Flute Foxes…which caused much confusion!
I’m originally from a wee fishing village called Burghead – a born and bred Moray fisher quine! I have always loved singing and playing instruments, I compose regularly and I’m currently working on my first solo album of folk music.
