Frank van Essen & Dave Bainbridge - Machrie Moor

from Meditations of a Sound Mind vol. 1 by Frank van Essen



One of my favourite Iona tunes. I originally recorded violin for this in 1992, while we were recording the Book of Kells album. Eventually this lovely track ended up on Beyond these Shores. Dave & I played this live many times at Iona gigs through the years, this is an improvised version we recorded in my studio a few years ago.

Frank van Essen is such a musician. Known for his powerful drumming & violin playing for UK band Iona and his strings for DJ Martin Garrix, he is venturing out into a whole musical world of his own". ... more
