A Highland Fling - DVD
Another new artist to the Pan Label - Eddie Rose. We at Pan Records wish Eddie every success with this CD and DVD 'A Highland Fling' features family comedy and some good Scottish singing backed by the Brandon McPhee Band. The show was recorded in front of an audience at Summer Palace, Ackergill Tower near Wick.
Live and Relaxed - DVD
This is the Brandon McPhee's Band fourth CD and second DVD on the Pan Label the first to be a live recording in front of a 200+ strong audience. This recording also features Brandon's first composition which he named after Pan Records, the title - 'Achnaclyth House'. This track features Kimberley Mackay joining the band on fiddle. The show was recorded earlier this year at a concert in the prestigious Ackergill Tower's Summer Palace.
After hearing all 19 tracks of the above band I was astonished and amazed at the ability of this young mans handling of the Shand Marino, and the very talented Alastair, Manson and Robert who accompany him. The phrasing and expression of all the Reels, Jigs, Strathspeys, Marches and Waltzes etc. and he sings very well, as does Manson. The tempos of all the sets are very well maintained, the Pipe Marches are of interest to me, here again very well played, the March, Strathspey and Reel is a very well arranged set. Bill Black of Stanley in competition tempo is very well expressed, as was the Strathspey and reel. Brandon's first composition again demonstrates his ability to compose as well as play the music. The heading says it all, 'Live and Relaxed', well done Brandon.

We at Pan Records welcome Ian to the label, he made the right decision in putting this album on general sale. Most of the session names on the album are familiar names on the Pan label, however we would like to give special mention to our Nashville musicians - Steve Hinson, Hank Singer, Glen Duncan - cv's too long to gointo here, look them up on the web, we think they have done a fantastic job on this recording also to Phil Anderson for organising, recording and producing their part and his own at Storm West Studios, Nashville.
