Duos

The live album from Simon Mayor and Hilary James.

'Over [58] fretting, double-stringed minutes, give or take time off for demonstrations of similar fiddle and guitar expertise and some sweetly-sung blues, standards and folk songs from Hilary James, Simon Mayor takes the mandolin from hot-licking Texas fiddle tunes to Handel's Arrival of the Queen of Sheba played with blurry-fingered precision.'
The Glasgow Herald (concert review, Edinburgh Fringe Festival)
