Praise for author Colin Harper:


‘Well-written, informative and heart-breaking…’

 Sunday Times, 2015


‘How Colin Harper had the mental tenacity to string together the disparate threads of music from the decades he covers is difficult to comprehend – but he pulls it off without ever being dull…’

 Record Collector, 2014

Product Description

Themed around ‘A Cultural Age In Its Autumn’, “Sunset Cavaliers” is a lovingly-crafted homage, written and performed by author and musician Colin Harper to the sound-worlds of the 1960s and 70s chronicled by him in five books over the past 15 years.

Three (biographies of jazz guitarist John McLaughlin and rock guitarist Andy Powell, plus a history of 300 years of Irish Uilleann Piping) were written during 2012-15 – which also time-frames the recording of the bulk of Sunset Cavaliers.

Drinking from a musical wellspring, spanning trad to rock via jazz and fusion, from the UK, Ireland and the USA, the album’s rich collaborations involve a roll call of star contributors in:


Mahavishnu Orchestra alumni Steve Kindler (violin) and Premik Tubbs (sax);

Wishbone Ash mainstay Andy Powell (guitar);

Chris Spedding (guitar);

Bert Jansch (guitar);

Brooks Williams (guitar);

Linley Hamilton (flugelhorn);

John McSherry (uilleann pipes);

Duffy Power (vocals/harmonica);

ex-Mellow Candle Alison O’Donnell (vocals);

Sarah McQuaid (vocals).
