Way back in June 2008 we had the great opportunity of being invited to record at the Real World Studiosdc-comma Box (that's Peter Gabriels place!) with the internationally known celtic harpist and singerdc-comma Loreena McKennit on her latest album " A Midwinter Night's dream".
This was a truly amazing experience and really nice to sing alongside such a giant in her field of music. Bob even got to do a couple of additional harmony lines as an over- dub. The track is "The Gloucestershire Wassail" and includes other singers including Eddie Uptondc-comma Bernard Coulterdc-comma Elena Robotham and Phillipa Toulson. Samples of Loreena McKennits musicdc-comma inclu ding the 'wassail' can be found on http://www.quinlanroad.com Bob dc-and Gill recorded a song from the singing of Loreena on their previous album "Sitting on a tree" on the WildGoose record label. The track was called" Bonny Portmore" .
