Adam Bulley and Chas Mackenzie are coming to Little Budworth

Formerly known as Wingin’ It, Adam Bulley and Chas Mackenzie are one of the most highly rated guitar duos in the country.

Weaving effortlessly between bluegrass, Gypsy jazz, folk and pop, they won a coveted Danny Kyle Award at Celtic Connections.

For The Money is their debut album consisting of ten self-composed pieces covering many musical genres and styles.

The album writing process began when, in 2011, the duo were commissioned to compose 10 minutes of new original music by the Gordon Duncan Memorial Trust, and then asked perform the piece at a prestigious concert in Perth Concert Hall in front of a sold-out audience.

That 10 minutes of material formed the core of the album, providing the pieces Lament for Gordon, Among Us and Raising the Bar.

Guesting on the album are a veritable who’s who of Scotland’s finest roots musicians including Ruaridh Campbell on violin, Angus Lyon on Fender Rhodes, Carrie Thomas on violin, Calum McIntyre on percussion, Alyn Cosker on drums, Ross Ainslie on whistle, Fraser Field on saxophone and whistle and Toby Shippey on trumpet and various percussion.
