Balkan Red was written, with tea and encouragement from the rest of Iron Horse, after being inspired by a trip to Slovenia and imagining further afield.
Journeyman is an independent, multi-faceted artist-run project promoting the music of Gavin Marwick and his friends. The Journeyman Project is a celebration of a life spent as a Scottish-based fiddle player, the musical friends made on the way and the tunes that Gavin, a prolific and enthusiastic composer, has written. There is a great diversity in his music, ranging from Scottish, through influences and inspirations picked up on his travels, to theatre work and pure fun. The 10 piece Journeyman Spectacular concerts are both a promotion for Gavin’s tunebook ‘Horizons’ and the double CD ‘The Long Road and The Far Horizons’ while also being a rare opportunity to see all these fantastic musicians sharing a stage together.
The album launch for ‘The Long Road and The Far Horizons’ was in Glasgow at Celtic Connections 2014 to a sold out venue and a standing ovation.
