The Boosted campaign to raise NZ$1,000 in donations towards the release of My Bonie Bell has been successful. Thanks to Annette Lingg, Stefan Frey, Christian Straetz, Michael Wilde, Markus Böggemann, Lee Martelli-Wood and all those anonymous donors for helping out. We’ll keep you posted.
Encouraged by the relative success of our first Robbie Burns comp, Ae Fond Kiss (scroll down for more info on Ae Fond Kiss), that came out in November 2015, we decided three months later to do a follow-up album, i.e. another LP of Robbie Burns songs interpreted and recorded by Dunedinites and in loose cooperation with Toitu‘s Robbie Rocks competition. The deadline was 15 June 2016, and we are happy to say that indeed all the tracks are in. Again, the album will feature artists from various generations including quite well known musicians who have had a distinguished career and young talent from the vibrant local scene.
The My Bonie Bell artists:
Darryl Baser, Jay Clarkson, Bill Direen, Lachie Hayes, David Mitchell (The 3Ds, The Ghostclub, Leather Apron, Evil) Roy Møller (from Edinburgh), The Tarseals (i. e. Eden Smith, who was a Robbie Rocks 2016 finalist with his band Paper Mountains), Partial Fancies (open category winners Robbie Rocks 2016), Mike Puke, Quibokk (aka Tim Bennett), Robert Scott (The Clean, The Bats, The Magick Heads, &c.), The Sharma Brothers (Aaron Sharma, aka A.J. Sharma; Mark Sharma – The David Lynch Mob; Robin Sharma – Seafog), Strang’s Strings & Co. (youth category winners Robbie Rocks 2016), Bridget Telfer (Robbie Rocks 2016 finalist).
