The Shabby Road branch of NewTones Studios was on the road again this week.
Hector Gubbins has been a friend for well over 20 years. He is an immense talent - artistically and musically. He is a great guitarist and mandolin player but he is also one of those people who can pick up almost any instrument and get a sound out of it.
I really wanted to get some of his squeezebox talents onto one of the songs on the album, 'Love and Understanding'. So I popped over for a very enjoyable afternoon last week and we nailed it.
This is an out-take where, suddenly, the spirit of English folk music takes over the song . . .
