Fantastic new release from one of the latest signings to the label.

From their Facebook page:-
Snuffbox are an acoustic trio, based in Glasgow, featuring Charlie Stewart on fiddle, Rufus Huggan on cello and Luc McNally on guitar and vocals. Mixing traditional tunes with contemporary flair, as well as quirky, original material, Snuffbox melds old and new to create entirely their own sound.

Charlie Stewart is currently a member of Techno Trad Collective Sketch and has reached the final of the young Traditional Musician of The Year which will take place during Celtic Connections 2017.

Luc McNally – also a member of Sketch and Dosca is very much in demand as a player on the burgeoning trad scene in Scotland.

Rufus – currently studying at RCS in Glasgow, also very much in demand as a player.

Playing For Free is a chance to hear some of the very best young guys on the scene in Scotland today. Have a listen on the player on the right.

We’re doing a special promo!! In a kind of crowdfunding scenario, you can pre order the CD, which will be pressed in February 2017, but get the album as a download straight away today!

This is the actual release version of the album and has been mastered by Denis Blackham at Skye Mastering on the Isle Of Skye.
