ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Following on the heels of the 2009 summer release "The Toy EP", Colin Grant plans to crank out his second full-length album entitled "Fun for the Whole Family" to kick-start 2010 with controlled abandon.

Teaming up again with co-producer/engineer Mike Shepherd of Lakewind Sound (www.lakewind.com), Colin set out to capture his evolving and versatile brand of Cape Breton fiddling in a series of sessions with a variety of close musical compatriots. Collaborators include his father, John Grant (highland pipes), New Waterford's own Dougie MacPhee (piano), the driving traditional duo of Robbie Fraser & Chris Babineau (piano, guitar), fellow Louisbourg Playhouse cast mates Jason Kempt, Adam Young and Jason MacDonald (piano, guitar), multi-instrumentalist and fellow Pogey band member Darren McMullen, and the powerhouse combo of Jason Roach and Patty Gillis (piano, guitar). Rounding out the album are two tracks by the emerging Colin Grant Band, comprised of the rough and red-eyed blues/funk rhythm section of Merlin Clarke, Shannon Ezzat and Donnie Calabrese on drums, electric guitars and bass.

Taking a new approach, Grant’s new album leans heavily on his own compositions, while paying respect to various contemporary musical influences and friends.

Excited about a brand-new batch of tunes and a wealth of sounds from some of Cape Breton's favourite accompanying musicians, Colin says "Fun for the Whole Family" promises to be just that; something for everyone, from indie scenesters to blue-haired bingo stampers.

An open letter
Dear Colin:

Just writing to say that you are full of shit.

No, really. Remember at the Dublin Irish Festival last year (2009), at the Sunday night session, putting down your fiddle and saying that you might as well give up playing fiddle because you would never play as well as some of the folks you were playing with?

Yeah. This is me calling you on that BS. Total bollix.

Just finished listening to the album. Really enjoyed it. Lovely turns, lovely phrasing, and some fun "modern" stuff added to the very authentic-feeling trad music. Hope to hear you guys play live again within the next couple years!

Sincerely,
Mary Bertke,
Banjo Babe Extraordinaire
