Ivan’s new album, “Live In Orkney” will be on general release on 3rd April 2017.
Here is a taster from the album featuring the Kirkwall City Pipe Band: Ivan Drever’s Compliments to the Kirkwall City Pipe Band.
A live recording was made at last year’s Orkney Folk Festival when Ivan was invited to get together a group of musicians to perform at “The Gathering”, an annual event in Orkney. This recording will be released on Ivan’s own Orcadian Recordings label in early April. To get a copy of the album click here
Those people lucky enough to have been at last Saturday’s sell out Celtic Connections concert in Glasgow will confirm that the evening went with a real swing. The Mitchell Library Theatre audience gave Ivan and his friends the warmest of welcomes.
Members of the Kirkwall City Pipe Band and the Orkney Song Shop joined Ivan and his five piece house band of top Orcadian musicians. They ran through a set list which ranged from Ivan’s earliest works through old favourites winding up with a Roy Orbison encore.
Ivan’s live recording of the 2016 Orkney Folk Festival Gathering is nearly ready for release on CD and will feature many of the arrangements played in Glasgow. Meanwhile here’s a taster from Saturday night….. “Keldabrae/Pumpkin Soup” featuring Mr Andy Cant on fiddle no less!
