Bill MacKay and Ryley Walker “I Heard Them Singing” – Listen

“SpiderBeetleBee” is the great new title of the new album by Bill MacKay and Ryley Walker which radiates forth with equal parts austerity and whimsy, as evidenced in the lead single I Heard Them Singing. Generating a nimble tempo with the aid of MacKay’s requinto (a kind of 5-string Mexican guitar), Walker’s rolling chords and the percolating tabla of Ryan Jewell, the song suggests an unknown short-cut from Brazil to India!  And if you want to hear Bill McKay singing, he hits UK shores later this month for a short tour.  Dates below.
