Description

Barbara Dickson and Rab Noakes met one lunchtime in Sandy Bell's pub in Edinburgh. Subsequently, they recorded live, sang on each other's records and have remained friends for over 40 years. They always love playing songs with each other and are delighted to be doing that, and sharing it with audiences, once more.

To accompany their 2014 tour Barbara Dickson and Rab Noakes have combined their voices to record an EP. Barbara and Rab have known one another for nearly fifty years and the songs recorded represent many areas they've explored together in that time.

They met in the mid-'60s in Edinburgh. The place was the Foresthill Bar, aka Sandy Bell's. The pub was the known hang-out for anyone interested in folksong and music. They both were, each having arrived there by a similar route.

Growing up in Fife, the airwaves of the 1950s pre, during and post-rock'n'roll were full of great songs. All of this impressed Barbara and Rab, particularly the records of the Everly Brothers.

On into the 1960s and the emergence of the Beatles and then Bob Dylan bounced each of them into an appreciation of folksongs. That rich mixture of songs from limitless sources appealed to them, and instilled in them an instinct for songs of interest wherever they're from.

The Reunited EP was recorded in one afternoon in John Cavanagh's Muirend ganghut studio. It captures the spirit, and the richness, of two people's unique experiences in the ever-interesting world of the popular song.
