Beyond the Borders
The second CD from the Dewhurst family band (Chris & Julie on accordion with Nick on drums) is almost an extension of their first  CD  (Crossing  Borders released  in 2008 and also available here) with about a third of  the  tracks for  use when ‘any good  tune’ is required  but with the addition of four tracks for well- known  dances  and  four  for  new  dances  by  Gillian  Jennings (2 of which are already published in her Catherine de Barnes Collections). Probably the most recognised track is Seton’s Ceilidh Band where the band has paired the lead tune with an arrangement  of  76  Trombones  and  Blaze  Away.  The  other ‘known’ dances  are  The Black, Black Oil, The Wee Cooper o’ Fife and Singing Sands and for these last two Chris composed all the secondary tunes. In fact Chris composed no less than 22 of the tunes on this CD.
