Ian on the left, Simon on the right

Here’s a new tune played by me and Ian Carr and written by Simon Thoumire and Alana NicAonghais with financial help from TASGADH (Traditional Arts Small Grants) and Creative Scotland.

The title is to remind me and Ian where we sit on the stage! It’s full title should be Ian on stage left…

Room 24 by Simon Thoumire and Ian Carr

This is a new composition of Ian’s that we recorded in Sweden in September 23. It was originally written in 2021 during the height of lockdown and we made a version of this from our two house. At last we managed to play it in the same room. Find out more
