Sketch ~ Sketch

The first CD from the excellent Sketch. With Dave Bowie on double bass, Gary Boyle on guitar, and Maggie Boyle on voice,flute and bodhrán, this is a wonderful collection of traditional and contemporary songs and tunes, with the odd jazz classic thrown in for good measure.

A superb debut album which captures the bands atmospheric performance beautifully.

Much more than a sketch, this is a masterpiece in miniature ~ Nigel Schofield

Buy it today and enjoy it for years to come!

Duck Baker, Maggie Boyle, Ben Paley ~ The Expatriate Game

"As the listenings repeat (and believe me, they certainly repeat), it all starts to make sense. Guitar, flute and fiddle weave seamlessly in and out of the tunes until there’s nobody driving, no passengers, just three wonderful musicians making wonderful music." Alan Rose - The Living Tradition
