SNOWGOOSE - Anna Sheard, Jim McCulloch, Raymond McGinley (Teenage Fanclub), Dave McGowan and Stuart Kidd - is pleased, and a little surprised, to present its debut album Harmony Springs.
The members of Snowgoose share a passion for 1960s British folk music and West Coast American sounds, and Jim McCulloch's original songs reflect the earthiness of the former and the melodic playfulness of the latter. Despite only a handful of Snowgoose shows, Anna Sheard has held audiences spellbound by the quality of her singing, drawing comparisons to Shirley Collins and Pentangle's Jacqui McShee.
Recorded at Raymond McGinley's home studio in Pollokshields, Glasgow and Leeders Farm in Norfolk, Harmony Springs features a stellar cast of additional musicians, including John McCusker (uber-folkmeister) on fiddle, Norman Blake (Teenage Fanclub) on vocals, Dave McCluskey (Bluebells, McCluskey Bros) on hammer dulcimer and Peter Dombernowsky (Giant Sand) on percussion.
