Honest Millie- Swing Music with great harmony vocals!

Listen to this!  A quick demo session for the Honest Millie website yielded some grooving tracks:

Chris Vaughan, Portsmouth’s Scottish Icon

Man-about-town Chris Vaughan is back at MPM Studio working on a new CD.  Here’s one of the tracks from the collection in progress.  Chris let me play all the instruments on this country-blues flavored outing.  Too much fun!Chris-Vaughan-1-300x297




Carrigan & Blair

Full disclosure:  I know Mike Blair and Steve Carrigan well, having played many a gig and concert with them as a part of Portsmouth’s Maritime/Celtic Folk ensemble Great Bay Sailor.   Great fun it was to blast through some of the songs we love on this new collection entitled O Chroi.  Thanks, Mike for giving me free rein to do all the instrumental work.  Beautiful singing, lads!




Cathy Wilson: Celtic Folk in Cookeville TN

Out of the blue, while waiting for a plane at the Nashville airport, I got a call from Cathy.  She had found the Mill Pond Music Studio website on line, had seen all the Celtic Tribute Series CDs I’d produced and had read about all the wonderful Celtic acts that have found their way to my workspace, but had just realized I was no longer based in Nashville near her hometown 90 miles away.  No problem!  A couple of weeks ago, while on one of my regular trips to Nashville, John Mock, Bill Verdier and I had the great pleasure of tracking a few of her beautiful songs, framing her sweet voice with fiddle, tin whistle, Irish drum, mandolin, DADGAD guitar and a few other things.   Listen to one of the tracks, which I mixed back up here.  Thanks, Cathy, for the opportunity to do what we love to do!
