Sleeve Notes for The Lea Rig by Hector Gilchrist & Liz Thomson

The Lea RigThe songs of Robert Burns: male and female vocals, fiddle, guitar, with guests on bagpipes, cello, string bass, whistles accordion.


Hector Gilchrist is a long-standing performer of Burns work. With Liz Thomson, whose knowledge of traditional and contemporary Scottish folk is extensive, he sings here as half of the duo Selkie, known for their sensitive and easy style.

Bill Eddies fiddle playing ranges from Scots music with the Aberdeen Strathspey and Reel Society to classical music with the University Symphony Orchestra and jazz with Jazz Avec and French connection.

Amongst the many excellent musicians joining Selkie on this album is a rare appearance by Doug Bailey from WildGoose on guitar.
