Album of the Week – Ian Bruce ‘Together Forever’

Written by on July 8, 2023

 

This 33-song, double album release of duets has been rightly described as a ‘powerhouse of a collection.’

Scots folk musician Ian Bruce has brought together a meaningful selection of songs that have seen him through his 67 years and, hopefully, beyond.

The 32 cover songs embrace some old favourites and less well known ones and Ian rounds things off with one of his own, the aptly titled, “And We Sing.”

Ian will be joining Liz Clark – Auntie Liz – to talk about the record and what it means to him on the Album of the Week Show today (Saturday, July 8) at midday.
