The Fisherman.  This first appeared on an album called "Back to Back" which I recorded with Struan Eaglesham from Wolfstone back in the nineties.

Sina's Tune.  I'm lucky enough to have two beautiful granddaughters, this tune is for Sina, in Norway. The other tune, "The Dark-Haired Ruby" can be found on the Drever, McGuire, Young album, "Return of the Shoestring Orchestra".

Angelina.  Recorded years ago, when I lived in Inverness, comes from a now deleted CD "Waterfront" also available as a download now.

Waiting.  This song was written during my time with Wolfstone. I'd completely forgotten about it until I found it in an old book a few months ago.

What You Hear...  A wee ditty I've been messing about with at sound checks for the last six months. Doubtless, it'll be different every time I play it!

Lakes of Pontchartrain.  In my opinion, one of the best traditional songs ever. Check out Paul Brady's version on his album “Welcome Here Kind Stranger”.

Rosalida.  Written whilst we lived in Spain for my pal, Jose. Rosalida was our local bar.

Chrissie's.  For my Ma. Written quite a few years ago and, eventually, recorded.

Ramblin' Boy.  Tom Paxton has always been a favourite songwriter of mine; I have wanted to cover this song for ages.

Jacqui's Wish.  This was a commission, which I sometimes do.  Let me know if you'd like something written and recorded.

Sweet Katarina.  Another song written for a friend of ours in Kristiansand, in the south of Norway.

The Hard Road.  First recorded in Orkney in the mid-eighties. A song of coming home after a long, six-week tour in America.

Recorded August 2014 at Bainbridge studios, Edinburgh. Produced by Ivan Drever, engineered, mixed and mastered by David Chisholm. Photography by Alexander Sedelnikov
All songs composed by Ivan Drever, except Rambling Boy by Tom Paxton and Lakes of Pontchartrain which is from the tradition.
