Tales of the unexpected

A lengthy piece and interview with Michael Marra in today's Scotland On Sunday by Mike Wade including his latest project " The Demon Barber"


 Michael's new CD " Quintet" is also reviewed by Norman Chalmers in today's paper -

Tob Records TRCD0023, £11.99

For fans of the Dundee bard, any recordings are worth getting a hold of even when, like this one, they have but five tracks - all dedicated to musicians and singers. Long established in his repertoire, 'Dr John's Visit To Blairgowrie' is here, as is his hymn to Shetland guitar star Peerie Willie, and Shetland eccentric genius Thomas Fraser. All the songs are cheerfully arranged for a convocation of reeds, fiddle, guitar, bass and assorted studio noises.
