Gavin Marwick on fiddle (Firelight Trio/ Bellevue Rendezvous/ Iron Horse) and Aaron Jones on cittern (Old Blind Dogs/ Litha/ Claire Mann) have worked together in many different line ups over the years. This is the first full recording featuring just the two of them.
CANDLEMAS is an EP length collection of new contemporary tunes in a traditional style, yet with the occasional twist. Gently vibed, honest, and high on sparkling acoustic interplay. Recorded live by Angus Lyon.
Gav is a prolific tune writer. CANDLEMAS is the first in his QUARTERDAYS series of duo EPs, to be released across 2023. They feature his new music in celebration of the old Scots Quarter Days.
