The Orkney Sessions From The Reel


cd - £12.99


A regular Saturday night session has been held in Orkney since 1990. In recent years the venue for it has been The Reel in Kirkwall.  The Reel is a music venue set up by Jennifer and Hazel Wrigley, who played at hte session in their early teenage years. Having left Orkney to pursue an extremely successful career on the Folk Music circuit, touring the world for 12 years, they returned to Orkney to start up their music school. The Reel became the home of the session 12 years ago, and it was there that this album was recorded over a couple of sessions. The music you hear is what happened to be played in the nights of the recording, and give the listener a true feeling of just what a session really is.
