Open session with Ewan Wilkinson and Sandy Brechin.
Sandy and Ewan have been playing together for more than ten years. They regularly tour Scotland, England and Wales, appearing at folk clubs and several folk festivals throughout the year. They have toured Australia three times, and also played in Bahrain and Sweden.
Brechin and Wilkinson play a mixture of Scottish, Irish and English traditional songs and tunes, together with contemporary folk songs and original compositions. Many of the contemporary folk songs are written by Ewan himself.
“Brilliant night – musically, one of the best nights we’ve ever had.” – Shammick Acoustic Folk Club, North Devon
“Wilkinson’s guitar-playing and singing are particularly emotive. Both his finger-picking and rhythm playing match Brechin’s ferocious display. During the ballads, his sensitive baritone, which is characterised by melodic folk inflections, intones the story of each piece. His own compositions are enchanting” – Broadway Baby
