Lucy Zirins: Live At The Old Courts
London-based singer-songwriter Lucy Zirins appeared as part of the Acoustic Roots Wigan season of concerts in May 2017. Ian captured the live performance, managed the live sound and took it back to the studio. He worked with Lucy on deciding which bits to include and produced the final master.
The result is a wonderfully intimate live CD - Live At The Old Courts - featuring Lucy on vocals and guitar, and long-time collaborator Andy Crowdy on double bass. The CD is getting great reviews - see the Plunger Music one below - and is available now from Lucy's website. Click on the album cover to go to Lucy's site.
“Live At The Old Courts perfectly captures the relaxed intimacy of a Lucy show, the confessional openness of her songs and her playful rapport with the audience. The bright, no-fuss production really does make it sound like she’s in the room with you, ideal for the various snatches of inter-song banter and stories included on the disc.” (Plunger Music)
Forthcoming Release: Long Story Short by Richard Knott
Richard is an excellent acoustic guitarist and his wonderfully crafted songs have been described as "on the bluesier side of singer-songwriter". His debut full-length album is due to be released on 23 February 2018 and Ian has not only acted as Associate Producer but has also done a little bit of mandolin session work too!
You can find out more about the album and Ian's involvement by visiting the Testimonials page, visiting Richard's website or by watching the promo video via the link on the left.
