— 365: Volume One

This music is about storytelling - how to tell stories without saying too much. James Robertson wrote a story every day for a year. I decided to test out the same process on composition, and in response to James's words, I wrote a tune every day for a year. Inevitably the melodies are rooted in my own background as a Scottish folk fiddler, but when Kit Downes gets involved he takes the harmonies to the most wondrous places.
365: Volume One
365: Vol.1, a double album (released by Reveal Records on 25 May 2018) from one of Scotland's finest musicians, fiddler and composer Aidan O'Rourke. The multiple BBC Folk Award winner and founding member of Lau, Kan and Blazin' Fiddles spent a year writing daily musical responses to James Robertson's short story collection 365: Stories (Hamish Hamilton / Penguin Books Ltd 2013).
