Kyle produced the new recording with engineering help from Mike Shepherd at Lakewind. Kyle made the recording over the course of June through September of this year.

“The selection of tunes on this new CD were influenced by Gaelic speaking musicians and composers and there’s a mix of all time frames in play – some of the tunes have been very recently composed and some are much older traditional tunes. As far as musical help goes I reached out first to Howie MacDonald who plays piano. On guitar I am joined by both Gordie Sampson and Patrick Gillis. My twin brother Keith joins me on bagpipes and I have some help from Emily MacDonald of Ainslie Glen (on a Gaelic song – Càite bheil I ann am Muile?), Brittany Rankin, and David Rankin,” Kyle added.

Kyle has already held a CD release at The Festival Club during Celtic Colours and there will be more to follow.

Kyle’s next CD release show will be held on Saturday, November 19th, at the Clay West Bar and Grill in Bayers Lake from 3:00 p.m to 6:00 p.m. with special guests Colin MacDonald on piano and David Rankin on guitar.
