The title of this album ‘About Time!’ reflects the response from many friends and family to the news of its creation. Both Stella and Joan grew up steeped in traditional music- a passion which they have continued to pursue. They have played together for more than 20 years with their music influenced by the accordion and fiddle club world where they met.
The choice of tracks on the album reflects their musical roots with compositions from great fiddle composers including Angus Fitchet, Ian Powrie, James Scott Skinner and Arthur Scott Robertson as well as some modern and new compositions.
Stella has combined her musical life with a fulltime professional career as a hospital Doctor. Now that retirement has arrived she is concentrating more fully on playing music and enjoying the friendships it has nurtured.
The proceeds from this album are being donated to Alzheimer Scotland, reflecting Joan and Stella’s knowledge and interest in supporting people living with Dementia.
