Coast to Coast with Scotch Mist
Scotch   Mist   has   been   born   from   the   legacy   of   Bobby   Brown   &   the   Scottish   Accent.   Following   Bobby’s untimely   death   in   2011,   his   son   Laird   led   the   Scottish   Accent   through   a   transition   period   and   the   new   band has developed. For   this   first   CD   the   band   line-up   is   Laird   Brown   (lead   accordion),   Stefanie   Hutka   (violin),   ‘Kerry   D.   Boax’ (2 nd    accordion   -   overdubbed),   Donny   Wood   (piano),   Warren   Beesley   (drums)   and   Rob   Wolanski   (bass).   To complement   this   showcase   of   Canadian   Scottish   Country   Dance   music,   the   dances   accompanying   this recording   come   from   far   and   wide   across   Canada   from   a   variety   of   teachers,   and   full   instructions   are included in the CD booklet, making it excellent value for money. There   are   13   dances   followed   by   the   Lament   for   Bobby   Brown   (Muriel   Johnstone)   and   a   closing   waltz composed   by   Laird   &   Donny.   The   dances   are   traditional   length   (8   or   4   x   32bars)   and   many   of   the   tunes   are also   traditional   -   Greenwoodside, The   Wee   Man   at   the   Loom,   Kirk’s   Hornpipe,   Goodnight   &   Joy   Be   With You, to   name   but   four,   but   there   are   some   excellent   arrangements   and   sets,   again   courtesy   of   Laird   &   Donny, including   new   tunes   by   Donny   Wood   and   others,   mixed   with   ‘old’   ones   by   Stan   Hamilton, Adam   Rennie   and the like, and even Sousa’s Liberty Bell!
