Never one to be pigeon-holed, Rick Taylors' debut release for FOTS records is a beautifully crafted recording. Although perhaps better known as a jazz musician 'The Poet And The Maiden' features Rick as a singer/songwriter.The album contains poetic translations of rare Gaelic songs, as well as Rick’s own evocative compositions and haunting voice.
The song is for Martyn and Inga to celebrate the birth of Ewan Thomas Green. Both parents are accordian players, I gave him a valve trombone to redress the balance.
The third verse is by Corrina Hewat close friend to all of the above.
