Scotland’s Kris Drever and England’s Boo Hewerdine have been connected through song
for almost a decade, when Kris approached Boo about recording the song “Harvest Gypsies”
as part of his classic debut album “Black Water”. Produced by mutual friend and Scottish
folk musician John McCusker, that recording lead the pair to future live collaborations
and a tour with Eddi Reader. The duo finally found the time in late summer 2014 to
write new songs with a view to making new recordings available for their 2015 tour.
Boo Hewerdine has an 18 song career retrospective, “My Name In The Brackets (The
Best of Boo Hewerdine & The Bible) released this autumn whilst Kris Drever has just
issued his Shetland recorded, “Mareel EP” prior to making a new album with Lau for
release in summer 2015 (all via Reveal Records).
