Album Notes
All of the material on this album has been inspired in some way, by events, people and places in Northumberland and Cumbria.

1. The Shoemakker – a unique take on this traditional song from the Geordie Song Book about a woman who marries a shoemaker but wishes that she hadn't!

2. Bellingham Stomp – an energising instrumental written for a session down the local pub when The Folk Trail stopped off in Bellingham on route from Lands End to John O’Groats.

3. The Bywell Baby – inspired by the remarkable story of Mary Leighton (the Bywell Baby) which first came to our attention following a Courant feature! This epic piece captures the drama of the great storm and flood of 1771.

4. It’s a Dog’s Life – a light hearted jazz track that all came together whilst Fiona was out for a run!

5. They Never Knew – drawn on our personal experience relating to the tragic events that took place in Cumbria (June 2010)

6. Kielder Water – a sumptous arrangement based on a wonderful tune written by our good friend Mike Bennett following his trip to the Forest Park. This track features Gwennie Fraser on Northumbrian small pipes.

7. Baby Can I Watch You Sleeping – a foot tapping, jazzy number complete with horn section taking in Swing, Gypsy and Dixieland jazz along the way! Words by Cumbrian poet Mike Naylor.

8. Whittington Jig – short lively jig for penny whistle named after the charming little Northumbrian village where the duo once lived.

9. Can Crusher – The device created by Paul for the last Bellingham All Acoustic Music Festival created so much intrigue that we decided to write a song about it! Very tongue in cheek.

10. Hey Mr Weatherman – a fun, daft and annoyingly catchy little song written about the weather (with local celebrity BBC weatherman Paul Mooney in mind). He also features on a video of the same song filmed on location in Bellingham.

11. Riverdale – a chill out track to end the album for ukelele and low G whistle. This relaxing tune captures the mood of a rare late summer day along the North Tyne.
