    John Macdonald’s Rachel Hair & Ron Jappy

Norrie spoke with Rachel about the new album Elan and discovered an insight how musicians can almost telepathically read each others minds. Some say it is by chance the end product sounds so good I reckon its skill and craft. The pair of Rachel Hair and Ron Jappy mesmorise us with delicate yet industrious playing. Rachel leads in the melodies but Ron creates the magic behind them. Subtle yet sometime rythmical this is guitar playing at the higher end. Rachel in writing some new material reverts back to highland roots and has created a new feel for pipe tunes and has transposed them to the clarsach with tremendous results. MacLeod’s of Waipu stirs the blood in its soft yet powerful way wile Tom Toi’s Polkas shows how much fun is in this album. Two musicians at the top of their game come together for this powerhouse of a album. Dont be left behind get your copy and feel the raw emotions you thought you never had
