Product notities

'A wonderful rendition of the Londonderry Air (Danny Boy)' (James McKeefry, Celtic Fringe BBC Radio, England. Nov 2010) 'Evokes Midsummer and rural idyll... gives a great impression of the Shropshire countryside where the band are from.. A breath of summer's warmth both visually and musically... I urge you to buy it before it sells out, which it undoubtedly will.' (Dan James, BRFM Radio, Nov 2010) Over the last few years we've spent a lot of time with John and Carolyne and the many wonderful folks that make up the Kaleidoscope Theatre Company. We've never visited them without being inspired by their approach both to performing and to life in general, and the shows we've played together in Kaleidoscope's Barn Theatre in Kemberton have been a huge learning experience for us as well as great fun. The Barn Theatre, with it's beautiful pine floor and mellow age-worn brickwork, has always given us a wonderful sound as well as being a calming and peaceful space. We were thrilled when the opportunity arose to record there in the summer of 2010, and so, early on a sunny morning in mid June we set up our instruments and recording equipment and began to record the music that was to become 'Three Fires'. The days we spent there over the next month developed a dreamy rhythm of their own. After putting the world to rights with John for a few minutes each morning, we'd climb the ladder to the theatre's lighting box, where a flick of the switch would fill the barn with soft honeyed light. And then we'd play. Tunes that we've played for years, tunes that were still being written as we recorded them, old favourites that we'd rearrange on the spot, we played for hours, with a focus and intensity that took us by surprise. Some tunes were nailed in the first take, some took longer to capture, but slowly the list of finished songs grew. At the end of each day we'd emerge from the cool of the barn into the early evening sunlight, often with a Kaleidoscope rehearsal in full flow to add a surreal touch to the proceedings. Listening to the recordings now, they seem infused with all that was going on around us and the idyllic surroundings in which they were made. Since our live album of 2009 'Rootsy...Folky...live and Funky...' we have been exploring Cape Breton music and a few of these traditional tunes have found their way onto this album - Herman the Carpenter, Wild Cat and Bonnie Nellie Reel - affectionately known as Jolly Green Giant in Whalebone circles. The remaining traditional track is Londonderry Air (Danny Boy), in our opinion a truly beautiful and moving melody, as much today as at any time in it's long history. As a band we have always enjoyed the challenge of performing tunes that audiences wouldn't normally expect from two acoustic guitars and a fiddle. The three cover versions on this album -The Boxer, Sweet Child O'Mine and Stairway to Heaven - all probably fall into this category and are amongst our favourites. Hopefully these versions demonstrate the beautiful melodies that the original songwriters wrote, with the instrumental versions proving a testament to how the songs stand up as pieces of music without the lyrics. Another important element of this album is the inspiration of Shropshire, the county in England where we all live and where we have written and recorded these tracks. As well as being a very beautiful, wild county Shropshire is also rich in history and folklore, and some of this is reflected in tunes like Three Fires, Corndon Morning, Red Moon and Wenlock Hare. Technical Notes: Steve used a Taylor 314CE with two feeds to the mixing desk, one via a Rode mic and the other from the pickup through a Fishman Aura pedal . The mic'ed sound was used predominantly with a bit of the pickup mixed in to give a little width to the sound. Char used a Martin 000C-16RGTE mic'ed again with a Rode, and a feed from the pickup to fatten the sound. Sarah was mic'ed with an overhead Rode. All of this was fed into a Yamaha AW1600 Digital Workstation. As much as possible we tried to capture the sound of all three of us playing together, and we feel really pleased with the results.
