Swinging On The Gate



Have a listen to some track samples.

Check the REVIEWS  to see what the critics say.


The CD is packaged in a 6 sided, double fold cover. Included is a booklet of photographs, taken on location at Fred & Pips woolshed, featuring all of us plus Hank and Beatrice.

The album was recorded over 2 days at The Fragile Colours studio in Welcome Bay, Bay of Plenty, NZ by Tim Julian.

Emma Jackson took all the wonderful photos and designed the cover and booklet.

Fred & Pip kindly let us use the woolshed as a rehearsal space. With assistance from their pets, it made a wonderful location for the photo shoot.
