LOWP TILL YE COWP  The Border Directors  Laidley Worm Music WORM012

This long-awaited CD has been recorded over the last few years and includes 17 tracks of music in the tradition, with many of the tunes written by band members, notably the prolific Matt. The CD includes guests on a few tracks: Alice Burn on Northumbrian smallpipes and Claire McTaggart on fiddle and viola, plus there is an archive track recorded in the 1990s featuring our original band member, the demon flautist Peter Hawkey.

The CD costs 10 from the band (£12 including postage and packing, including overseas) - see contacts on the About Page.  It's also possible to order and pay for copies via PayPal through Matt's website (see the Border Directors page there).  The CD can be purchased alternatively at the Chantry in Morpeth and at Core Music in Hexham.
