Hello fellow ChiffyFipplers -

Long time no post! I have a few pals around here so I thought I'd drop a line and let you know I have a new album available for digital download or hard copies via iTunes, Amazon, and CDBaby.

I recorded this several years ago, but life got in the way with marriage, stepkids, buying a house, etc., but now it is available and I hope you'll consider giving it a spin. You can find it here:

https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/betwe ... 1210577930

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XC ... s_sp_ps_dp

https://www.cdbaby.com/cd/gordongowerwithzacleger

It's a mix of reels, jigs, airs, and songs playing on Irish flute, uilleann pipes, tin whistle, low whistle, bodhran, and piano.

Thanks for your time!

best,
Gordon

You guys sound awesome! Flutes, whistles, pipes, and song. And that Bb flute!! Simply incredible sounding. And the dual whistles...

So was it just you and Zac, playing the tunes and accompaniment? Or others as well?

Well done and best wishes,
-Jay

Bump-- Certainly worth a listen. Two fine young musicians.
The music is meticulously recorded and produced.

From three listenings so far to the hard copy (CD) I received on Monday...

Have to say I like it, or I wouldn't be posting this now. I remember Gordon posting that recording of Casadh an Tsugain (and why) on C&F when it was made, and it's still touching! The songs and slow airs are nicely done... Gordon plays his two featured flute airs with the kind of dense, harmonic-rich tone I like, but I could imagine some preferring a slightly lighter timbre. I also particularly like the lively, but not driven, dance tunes with some light, bouncy bouzouki and (typically slightly weightier) guitar backings from Zac. The use of 'vinyl' noise to provide both atmosphere and pulse in one otherwise unaccompanied whistle duet set is clever, but not my favourite thing on the album with the two whistles perhaps the most exposed combination where intonation's concerned. I like both slow reels and the late Andy M. Stewart, so appreciate the closing combination of song learned from Andy's singing (which you could probably guess from the way Blake's sounding here) and slow reel where many might have gone for another dance set.

The music is good and the sound clear, close and bright. I hope folk keep buying, listening to, and enjoying it.
