Renowned Deeside violin virtuoso, Paul Anderson, has seen two years’ work come to fruition with the release of his newest album.

Tarland man Paul recorded his 51 track, 70-minute work, ‘Land of the Standing Stone,’ at Banchory’s Mill Studios.

Paul, in his thirties, is well known in the Scottish fiddle community with one trade website describing him as “one of the most exciting fiddle players to come out of Scotland in recent years.”

He said of the new album: “On and off it’s taken the best part of two years to complete though admittedly there were periods when months would pass between recording sessions.

‘‘I was ably supported by some wonderful musicians during the recording process.

“The album was recorded at the Mill Studio and contains 51 original tunes and one ballad called “Bonnie Henry Gordon” which tells the story of the bloody feud between the Gordon’s of Knock and Forbes of Strathgirnoc in the 1570′s and which was sung by well known Scottish actor, Kevin McKidd.”

The album is available to buy now through Paul’s website or you can download it on i-tunes.
