On a Fine May Morning

Blog from the Snakepark has a page about the new Candy Seance album with photos, credits, and artwork created by Allan’s friends to illustrate each song.

Here’s Teri Rowan’s lovely image designed for “The Water and the Grain”. A fairy with a flute! The song is a haunting lament by a lad seduced by the May Queen, a sort of Tam Lin tale.

New album from Allan Watson

The new songs from Candy Seance are now available! I’m pretty excited about my flute parts on “The Water and the Grain ” and “The Lady of the Runes.” Allan’s songwriting and guitar playing, composing and arranging, recording and producing, mixing and equalizing (whatever that is) are outstanding. It’s a wonder he isn’t a household name rock-n- roll star. I’ve been privileged to see the evolutions of the songs through their various demo versions and changes to the final product. Would love to play sometime in person with Allan, but I’ve made do with my USB microphone, Audacity recording software, and emailing of files some 5,000 miles away to Glasgow. Thanks, Allan, for the collaboration.

The album is a free listen/download from SoundCloud:
