Large Ballaglass Set Front Cover 2

The album was recorded and mixed by David Rowles at the Peel Centenary Centre on the Isle of Man with the help of Ruth Keggin, Owen Williams, and Ray Dolloso.

It was inspired by the beauty of Ballaglass Glen, Maughold in the north-east of the Isle of Man.

A tumbling river runs through the Glen and for hundreds of years it has been known as ‘the musical stream’ because of the beautiful natural sounds it brings brings to Ballaglass. It is particularly colourful in the spring as the snowdrops, the daffodils and the bluebells come and go in sequence.

I hope you find some of its sounds in the music on the EP!
