A Recording Surprise
The last two days have been spent knee-deep in edits (metaphorically speaking of course; I was working purely in the digital domain!). Now a good way into recording his second album with us, Ben Drake has spent a great deal of time tracking recently, so I’ve currently got a massive backlog of editing work, some of which I managed to get through. Yesterday afternoon however, I took an hour out to record Caroline Riches (from ‘Ragged Staff’) a fiddle, and – to my surprise – a dulcimer, for a folk track, titled ‘I Lay Stretched On Your Grave’. Dulcimers are one of favourite instruments, and having never recorded one before, was a real treat too!
