Old Dollar Bill performing on Mairi Orr's 'The Gathering Crows' E.P
The Paul Kerr Review
In the dying days of Celtic Connections we heard that good friends of Blabber'n'Smoke, Old Dollar Bill were venturing west to support Mairi Orr at an Open Stage gig. The Open stage is a free daily show featuring several artists who have the opportunity to play to a very appreciative audience. It's one of Celtic Connections' finer aspects and was inspired by the late and great Danny Kyle.
Anyway, Mairi, originally from Morar in the west Highlands but now living in Edinburgh, appeared with her 'borrowed band', and delivered a fine set featuring songs from her sparkling debut disc, The Gathering Crows that went down a treat. Intrigued we sought a copy and for the past two weeks have been very impressed. The Gathering Crows is a five song collection with all titles written by Orr and featuring support from Stephen Clark and Ed Henry of Old Dollar Bill among others. It positively bursts at the seams with a vibrant quality and the maturity of the writing and playing is unexpected from someone just stepping onto the stage.
Orr's voice has a magnificent presence. Strong and melodic she could fit well into that pantheon that includes Sandy Denny, Linda Thompson, Jacqui McShee and in particular the enigma that is Shelagh McDonald. The latter is particularly recalled on two songs here, the title song and the opening For Gold. Both songs are baleful tales, chilling in their delivery with some superb backing, the Dobro in For Gold snakes menacingly throughout while on The gathering Crows the guitar, mandolin, bass and percussion thrash together in a propulsive audio equivalent of a murder of crows. A third song, Will You is delivered very much in a folk style that does recall early Denny and it features some exquisite fiddle by Amy Geddes. The two remaining songs display a more American influence. Sweet One has an urgency that owes a debt to bluegrass while Two Different States of Mind features just Orr and banjo from Mark Woods on a tantalising murder ballad.
A great debut and a mention must be made of the excellent supportive players,Stephen Clark, Ed Henry, Hugh Kelly, Mark Woods
and Amy Geddes who all add a very authentic and well played backdrop to Ms.Orr's very talented delivery.

Old Dollar Bill become part of 'The Borrowed Band'
for Celtic Connections 2012
Mairi Orr who has provided great backing vocals on a number of Old Dollar Bill original tracks recently recorded and released
'The Gathering Crows'
a collection of her own original compositions which for recording she needed a band so she called on her old friends Old Dollar Bill.
Ed provided the Percussion and Stephen provided Guitar, Mandolin and Dobro.
Mairi upon releasing 'The Gathering Crows' successfully attained a sought after spot on the prestigious Danny Kyle Open Stage at Celtic Connections 2012 held at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall and asked if Old Dollar Bill could do live what they did for her in the studio.
In agreement Old Dollar Bill along with Hugh Kelly (from Blue Flint) on Double Bass became 'The Borrowed Band'.
It was a great night!
