ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
About Two Men In Skirts

Baritone Gaitley Stevenson-Mathews and Pianist Jim Stevenson-Mathews perform as the Scottish musical duo, Two Men In Skirts. The duo began their celebrated collaboration in the winter of 2006 after being invited to perform for several musical projects for Scottish games and Celtic events in the Northeast. With humor, joy, and unique style they lead audiences through the rich tapestry of Scotland's musical past and through some of the more contemporary works by Scotland's greatest composers and lyricists.

Gaitley Stevenson-Mathews’ professional career spans more than twenty years and many regions of the country including major theatrical performances with Hope Repertory Theatre (Michigan), Lyric Stage (Texas), Theatre 3 (Texas), Dallas Opera (Texas), Chautauqua Festival Theatre (New York) and John Houseman’s the Acting Company (New York). Gaitley also founded Deep Ellum Opera Theatre in Dallas, Texas in 1991. He received the Leon Rabin Award (Dallas’ version of the Tony Awards) for Best Actor in a Musical for his performances in the musicals “Sweet Charity” and “My Fair Lady.”

Jim Stevenson-Mathews has been involved with Scottish music for well over 25 years. After first learning English folk dancing during his college years, Jim later learned about Scottish folk dancing when he moved from the Midwest to New York City. Since he could dance and play the piano, Jim was often asked to provide piano accompaniment for the Scottish country dances he attended. During one of these dances, Jim was fortunate to meet fiddle player, Elke Baker (who later became the U.S. National Scottish Fiddle Champion). After hearing Jim play, Ms. Baker invited him to join her for some performances. For several years, they joined forces and shared their love for Scottish music with their audiences.


With Gaitley's mellifluous baritone and Jim’s eloquent piano playing, audiences are always in for a special musical experience. These “Two Men In Skirts” always tell their audiences about the “Great Kilt,” and then with humor and plenty of Scottish wit and charm, they drive home the point ---- “It's fine for someone of Scottish heritage to poke fun at himself, but don't YOU dare call what he's wearing a skirt!"


This debut album is a collection of the duo’s favorite musical numbers and includes many of Scotland’s best-loved traditional songs.
