New Cd???

I had hoped to have the latest CD we are working on out this side of Christmas but I decided to put a couple more tracks on it so it will be next month before it's finished!
The album is called ~ Low Country Boys, Plain An Simple...... I have one instrumental track to record and Richard has a couple of harmony lines to finish ,William then does a final mix and master, it is then sent of for production so mid Jan. we hope to have it!

New Album?

William at the mixing desk
Gibson saying to himself ........... is this the right chord?

A few weeks ago i mentioned that there might be a new album in the pipe line...well we were in the recording studio last night with gibo puttin some vocal and banjo tracks down!.I had a chat with William ( our recording man ) to see if he could squeeze me in for an hour or two to record a couple of wee tunes and songs i had been working on..he said that he could fit me in here and there with a few hours.. this has developed a little more and i have put down a few more tracks with songs that i sing when we are out as Low Country Boys, we will end up with a dozen tracks i think!. The style will be a little different as it will be songs that I sing the lead vocal in...i hope to upload some tracks shortly on our site to give you a flavour of it, there may be some friends helping out with a song or two but nothing is setteled just yet,it is touch and go if it will be out for Christmas and we will sell it from our web site and at concerts at first and will see about the shops after keep your eyes on for progress report!
