This "album" was recorded live at Summerhall in Edinburgh in Feb 2017. Both tracks are largely improvised, although track One does contain verses of the trad song 'Edward', that I learned from the singing of Jean Ritchie.

Aidan O'Rourke is perhaps best known for his work as a member of the band Lau. Our thanks to Song By Toad records for inviting us to play and to Alex Fiennes for the recording.
