Celtic Americana anyone? We're back to steel strings for this tune, which in our imagination started in the Highlands and then drifted west across the Atlantic.

Played on nylon string guitars, “Éan an anro” translates into ‘bird of hardship’ in Gaeilge/Irish and figuratively describes a person who is content to be out in all kinds of weather but more generally someone who endures inclemency or adversity without complaint.

Nebraska

Whalebone

In cart Not available Out of stock

NEBRASKA A thoughtful, dreamy Americana style cover of Bruce Springsteen's song Nebraska, played on two acoustic guitars. The original song is sung from the point of a man reflecting on the wrong choices he has made in his life and we've tried to capture some of that mood. We've tried to pay homage to the original tune whilst putting our own stamp on it.

The Otter's Holt

Whalebone

'Holt' is another word for an otter’s den, coming from old words for "wood," "woods," and "wooded hill" (Icelandic "holt" and German "holz" both mean wood).

We perform the tune on an Irish Bouzouki and Acoustic Guitar with the swirling arpeggios and beautiful melody line evoking the sinuous fluid movements of an otter in the water.

As Turn the Seasons

Whalebone

In cart Not available Out of stock

This album traces the seasons from Spring through to Winter. Originally recorded as four separate EPs, we wrote & recorded each set of tunes in each season, which we think adds to the authenticity of the music travelling through the months.
