Little John Nee and The Caledonia Highly Strung Orchestra
Debut album: Songs from the Lough Swilly Delta
Little John Nee is a writer and performer who has developed an original and authentic contemporary style of musical storytelling and theatrical songs that has won him national and international recognition.
The Caledonia Highly Strung Orchestra are all accomplished musicians and performers in their own right with a dazzling resume of talents and skills as multi-instrumentalists, film makers, actors, editors and educators, they bring energy, sensitivity and layers of delicate and powerful harmony to these songs.
Songs from the Lough Swilly Delta is the new album with songs from theatre shows of Little John Nee recorded with the Caledonia Highly Strung Orchestra. A mixture of comic blues and haunted ballads, featuring songs from “The Derry Boat”, “The Mental”, “Dead Rooster Blues”, “Sparkplug” and others all given the “Highly Strung” treatment; the warm earthy guitars of Fionn Robinson, the Ella-mental voice and kaleidoscopic clarinets of Orlaith Gilcreest, the pulsing piano and hair-blowing Hammond of Jeremy Howard as well and Little John’s trademark ukulele and cigar box guitar, all recorded at Attica Studios in Termon, Co. Donegal under the “super”vision of Tommy McLaughlin of Villagers.
