Ivan Drever has been around the Scottish folk and roots scene seemingly forever and his friendship with Frankie McGuire is goes back to the mid-eighties. Richard Young is a recent conspirator but the three of them share a taste for music that is warm and close without being cloying or smothering.
As with the best music, ‘Gifts’ has layers and seems to let you, the listener, into a little more with every listen but the core to all this is a mutual desire to add to each others music and as a listener I find it incredibly rewarding.
There are folk and roots elements as well as Celtic harmonies, all acoustic and played with utter grace and with melodies that remain in the mind after the track has finished.
‘Forget Me Not’ is lovely and the rocky ‘Roll Over Stonehaven’ kicks its heels up like a grandmaw at the dance but my favourite is split between the country-Blues of ‘You Take The Rhythm’ and the lovely ‘Candle in the Storm’.
