Blair Douglas

Postby alastaircook101 » Tue Jul 21, 2009 10:44 pm

In the last few weeks I have purchased my first two Blair Douglas CDs....Summer in Skye, and Stay Strong. Wow. I really like the range of material, and the way he has developed the Gaelic theme, and adapted it. My question is: on the Stay Strong CD, on the track "Lewis Love", which Rory MacDonald sings on.....is that Malcolm on the searing guitar. It sure sounds like him, and I suspect it is, but I just wanted to be sure. Several guitar players are credited on the album

Yes indeed, it our Mr Jones. I think the drummer plays very much like Iain as well. Now - Scone, Blair, Rory, Malcolm and the other guys! I would love to hear Lewis Love that day!

I know Blair and Donnie also use Chaz Stewart - who's playing style can be a bit like Malcolm's (expecially when he plays in the DM RR tribute band) However, although quite a good guitarist he doesn't have quite the subtleness of Malcolm and doesn't make his guitar soar like Malcolm.

I'm not sure I know that band - is it a "nom de plume"? Does it have somebody playing the wooden spoons?

I've never seen Blair live. I'm looking forward to Scone as much for seeing and hearing him as anybody else.
