Robin Williamson & His Merry band - A Glint at the Kindling (CD)

£6.99

Product description

Scottish multi-instrumentalist musician, singer and songwriter born 24 November 1943 in Edinburgh. Most famous for his part in the Incredible String Band between 1966 and 1974 with Mike Heron and others.

A Glint at the Kindling is a folk album released in 1979 by Robin Williamson and his Merry Band. This album would be the last collaboration between Robin Williamson and his Merry Band. Largely biographical, the album's concept is based on Williamson's own poem entitled Five Denials On Merlin's Grave which in turn was inspired by five broad stages of ancient British history. Many of the tracks, including "Me and the Mad Girl" and "Lough Foyle", are still performed by Williamson today.

This 2005 CD re-release by Gott Discs includes 5 bonus poetry tracks: "Five Bardic Mysteries". These were originally released in 1985 on cassette and it showcases Williamson's skill as a storyteller.[
