Gleanings by Hector Gilchrist


Since my original introduction into the world of folk clubs and festivals getting on for 55 years now, I would have listened to hundreds of wonderful songs covering a range of genres. There is always another good song which should have been learned and incorporated into the repertoire but for various and not always good reasons, they are left out or forgotten.

To date, I have recorded approximately 70 tracks on vinyl, cassette and C.D. and this selection adds a few more, although I make no apology for re-recording a couple of my favourites. The others I have gleaned and placed into the basket of memories.

My grateful thanks are due to the support and encouragement of family and special friends. To Wildgoose Studio and the Baileys for this my fifth C.D on their label and to all these excellent musicians appearing on this recording who can always add more than a little bit of magic to a performance.
