Anna Massie & Mairearad Green – Toller Folk aus Schottland mit Gitarre, Fiddle, Banjo und Akkordeon oder Dudelsack

Vor Kurzem habe eine Aufnahme von Anna und Mairearad bei soundcloud entdeckt und mir anschließend bei youtube die Videos von zusammengesucht. Von Anfang an hat mich dieses Duo mit Akkordeon und Gitarre, Banjo oder Fiddle überzeugt. Bei einigen Stücken spielt Mairearad auch den Dudelsack.

Obwohl das Duo schon seit zwölf Jahren zusammen spielt haben sie gerade erst ihre erste eigene CD veröffentlicht – Best Day:

‘Best Day’ was recorded at Gran’s House Studio in Lamington in peaceful and picturesque South Lanarkshire. Remaining true to their live sound, the album is performed entirely by Mairearad and Anna themselves. Their pairing combines Mairearad’s deft and lyrical accordion style, as well as her masterful piping, with Anna’s unparalleled versatility on guitar, fiddle and banjo. After over twelve years playing together, in the last few years, both have introduced songs to their live set, demonstrating the pair’s seemingly infinite abilities as musicians, but also the symbiotic synergy of performing together. ‘Best Day’ is the duo’s first album to include songs, and it will be available exclusively on tour, ahead of its release on November 16, 2015.

Viel Spass mit Anna und Mairearad!
