Accordion player Dan Gurney is taking pre-orders now for his debut solo album of traditional music.

This summer I'll be recording my first solo album of Irish traditional music. Over the years I've been fortunate enough to learn my music from people like Father Charlie Coen, Mick Conneely Sr., and Joe Derrane. They taught me a lot of tunes that haven't been widely heard before, so I have a lot of things to say and tunes to share with everyone. 

This August, I'll be flying to Ireland (where I lived last year) to record with a few of my favorite accompanists. I feel that Irish music should be recorded in a natural way -- with very little studio polish and a bit of roughness around the edges. 

If that sounds interesting, I'm now taking pre-orders, for which you'll receive one of the packages described on the right. Whether it's a first-press CD, your name in the liner notes, or a subscription to the supporter-only email newsletter, I'd love for you to be involved. 

Thanks so much,

Dan

    I will come play a house concert for you and your friends, anywhere within 200 miles of Boston. During that concert I will play, among other (good) things, my early little known tune "Andrew and the Tie Dyed Chicken." This tune will never be repeated in public again.

    Co-Producer credit on the album. This will also get you access to rough mixes, if you want to hear them, and I'll listen to your input on track ordering. I'm not saying I'll agree with it, but I'll listen to it!
