Acclaimed duo Doghouse Roses return once more to Aberdeen Folk Club. Hailing from Aberdeen & Glasgow, the duo comprises Iona Macdonald and Paul Tasker, who will be bringing their trademark guitar and vocals to the Blue Lamp on Wednesday, 14th February.
'Glasgow duo Paul Tasker and Iona Macdonald have often been compared to Sandy Denny and Bert Jansch, and it's easy to understand why; a self confessed Jansch devotee, Tasker's playing has the same flowing feel, his effortless fingerpicking perfectly complementing Macdonald's fragile vocals. An album that doesn't shirk from difficult subject matter — politics, alcoholism and prostitution are all vividly brought to life — from the folky 'The Whistle Song', to the light country feel of Diesel Engine' and Paul's 'New Year Rag', the pair borrow influences from all over the place. But it all hangs together making this rather special' — Acoustic Magazine, November 2016
