Between A Breath And A Breath 14/7/20
Dyble Longdon is a collaboration between iconic vocalist Judy Dyble (ex Fairport Convention, Trader Horne), who sadly, we learnt on Sunday, has died after a long illness, and Big Big Train songwriter and frontman David Longdon, and they release their highly anticipated album 'Between A Breath And A Breath' on Friday 25th September. The album contains seven original compositions with all lyrics by Judy and music and production by David. The songs are, at times, haunting and, at others, beautifully fragile. As well as Judy (vocals, autoharp) and David (vocals, acoustic and electric guitars, mandolin, piano and keyboards), they are joined by Jeff Davenport (Jade Warrior, drums) plus Longdon’s Big Big Train bandmates Danny Manners (double bass), Rikard Sjöblom (accordion), Rachel Hall (violin), Greg Spawton (bass guitar and Moog Taurus pedals) and Nick D’Virgilio (drums). Other featured musicians are Dave Gregory (ex-Big Big Train and XTC, guitar), Andy Lewis (Paul Weller, bass guitar), Luca Calabrese (Isildurs Bane, trumpet) and Dave Sturt (Gong and Steve Hillage, fretless bass).
