no, it is NOT a stocking filler – but worth a prime place under the tree 🙂 Thanks Ian
For the past 40 years, Ian Dearden has been a passionate musical performer. From his high school rock band to university folk clubs, in solo, duo and band configurations, Ian has performed and busked at clubs, pubs & festivals throughout Australia, UK, Ireland, Europe and the USA. Ian’s skilled guitar playing, heartfelt singing, and a repertoire that includes original, traditional and contemporary songs never fails to engage.
In December, 2014 he released his debut album, “What Took You So Long?”, containing 12 original songs in superb, harmony-drenched acoustic arrangements. With delightful vocal and instrumental contributions from leading Australian musicians and songwriters including Liz Frencham, Fred Smith, Mark Cryle, Caroline Hammond, Rhiannon Fenn and Mark Ziza, as well as London-based Polish classical cellist Evva Mizerska, this is the distillation of 40 years of songwriting and performing.
You can purchase a copy of the album ($20 plus shipping) from www.trystrecords.com.au.
It would make a wonderful Christmas present for yourself, or others, or both!!
