I first “met” Ian while listening to “The Sunday Getherin’ with Karin Ingram.”

We were preparing to re-release my “I Can’t Remember To Forget You” album and wanted to add a new song. Ian and I a had exchanged CDs. After listening and becoming a fan of his music, I asked if he might be interested in singing the lead background part on the song. He enthusiastically agreed!

Ian is very well known as a singer/songwriter in the Scottish Folk Movement. His most recent release “Young Territorial,” which he describes as a “labour of love,” is a re-imagined, rewrite of works from a book titled “Gray Kilts” by Duncan Tovey, a storyteller of the Regiment during World War 2. The music was written and performed by Ian along with the “tartan spiders,” a 13-piece roster of guest singers and musicians. He has quite a number of albums and downloads available and I encourage you to check out his website:

(Fiddle, Mandolin)

Ray is a friend of mine from way back. I first met him when my country band was performing at a club in Vermont.

He played fiddle on our 1st 45 Record and then I moved to Nashville and we lost touch. Many years later I found him again on Facebook and he was the natural choice to play on this song.

Ray Legere is a world-renowned fiddle and mandolin player and a household name for music lovers across the Maritimes (Canada). His astonishing technique and boundless musical energy enthrall and excite musicians and audiences alike, and continue to garner what is already a lifetime of justly deserved accolades. From Sackville, NB, Ray tours the world and records with the top musicians in many musical genres. He has played with most of the great North American bluegrass players, including legends like Tony Rice, Alison Krauss, David Grisman, and Doc Watson. In 1982, he even filled in for Bill Monroe— the father of bluegrass—when Monroe took ill before a concert. Ray has toured internationally with artists such as Rita McNeil, John McDermott, Bowfire, and Michelle Shocked. In 2017-present he has been seen touring with hit NB acts Tomato/Tomato, Laurie LeBlanc, Christian ‘Kit’ Goguen, and classical woodwind quintet Ventus Machina.

Ray is the 2019 recipient of the Lieutenant Governors Award for High Achievement in the Arts and is a multiple ECMA award winner. He has won numerous awards for his fiddling and mandolin playing, including 2 National Mandolin Championships (1983 and 1986) and was recently inducted into both, the NB and the NS Country Music Hall of Fame.

I also “met” John through “The Getherin'”.

John has been so supportive of my music and recruited many of our background singers. Although there is a great distance between us (and a rather large “pond”) I am so happy that I have had the opportunity to get to know John and call him my friend.

John is a singer-songwriter from North West England whose main instrument is a cittern. Many of his songs are environmentally or politically charged, and the resonance of the cittern provides an almost choral backing to his solo performances giving them a unique power. For his 2019 album “Inheritance” John changed direction, with a much more personal work, covering themes of ancestry, family, and love, and yes, with at least one protest song in the mix.

The collaborative NIGHTSONG project “The Peasant’s Revolt” saw John and producer Ali Karim joining forces with the superlatively talented Jo Beth Young. Released on the evening of the Winter Solstice, 21st December 2020, the album has drawn acclaim from Folk Radio UK (“remarkable, well-researched, historically illuminating, consumately crafted album…both musically esoteric and accessible, haunting and atmospheric, it deserves to be a classic of its kind”), and Fatea Magazine (“Yes it’s dark, it reflects dark times, but it does so in a way that entertains, a way that explains more than it preaches, does so in a way that makes this an album that bears repeated play and one that has so much to give”).

There are two new works for which recording was interrupted by Covid-19: “Breathe” with producer Ali Karim, and “John Reed Live in the Studio”. “Breathe” was just released on October 1, 2021 and John has a new album “Live” to follow sometime in 2022.

His new release is “New Buryin’ Ground” with The Grace Machine. Influenced by the turmoil of uncertainty that the last two years brought, the Grace Machine felt drawn to revisit a number of old blues influenced spirituals. They wanted to find songs that convey a powerful mixture of trial, agony and hope.

Although he is classically trained in piano, violin and musical theorgy, his growing frustration with the “note
