(As I'm sure you know, scullery is an old word for the "working kitchen".) We've had a bit of publicity this week in the local papers and also the new edition of The Ulster Scot newspaper. We've had a good few emails and phonecalls already from folk who are keen to hear a wee bit of our new material.
Our "proper" album-quality recordings aren't finished yet, so meanwhile here are three of our demo recordings - literally recorded as the two of us were jamming at the kitchen table in one take, with a single microphone, raw and unpolished, with a good few wrong notes here and there! All are old old songs. These demos will give you an idea of our live sound - hope you enjoy them, rough as they are.
