Product Information

Ivan was invited to curate an event at the Orkney Gathering in 2016 - this live recording was the result.

‘This live recording was made at Orkney Folk Festival when I was invited to get together a group of musicians to perform at "The Gathering", an annual event. It was a great honour for me to go back to a place I still regard as home and to perform with the cream of Orcadian musicians and some very good friends. We had a wonderful time; I hope you enjoy the fruits of our labours.

‘A huge thanks to Stewart Shearer for pulling the thing together musically, and for his sterling job at the mixing/mastering desk. Massive thanks to Bob Gibbon and all at the Orkney Folk Festival ( and John Weatherby and Kris Koren of Sound Sense (’
