After the release of the last album “stories of life, love and loss” we have been focusing on spreading the word and playing a couple of gigs in England and Germany, so there was little news about new songs.
Being friends for quite a long time, the guys teamed up with fellow musician and Bagpipe player Tam Stewart already at the album release, which was a blast and lifted the roof of the ”Dolphin” (check out the pics on the website- what a night..). After joining in on another gig, the guys thought about doing a song together, and the first one is done.
After a couple of sessions, “The Gael” has aired out for the very first time at our friends of “Schottenradio”, in a nice special show that has also featured Chris, Adam and Tam for a live chat. The response was great, with loads of messages floating into the station, asking for more!
“The Gael” is an instrumental cover of the well-known theme of the movie “The last of the Mohicans”, written by Dougie MacLean. Chris: “This has been one of my favorite tunes for quite a while, and chatting with Tam, he loved it very much as well, and has had already recorded a version of it! So things went on, we added our own style and we´re very proud of the outcome. We hope to continue to work with Tam, and hopefully he can be around for some gigs as well.”
The recording has another new element, as it is introducing the famous “Driftwood Onesie” for the first time!
For the moment, tune into “Schottenradio” to pick up the tune in their regular program. A huge thanks to Basil and every listener on Schottenradio!
We´re working to get a recording on the website as well, and maybe more, so stay tuned!
