A steaming, pulsing collection of songs and musically illuminated stories coming home to roost. Here be tales of family, longing, love & long histories. Told by an Orchestra, ring-mastered by Luke Carver Goss and whirlingly dervished by Barnsley poet Ian McMillan. iPod’s, first gigs, cuts and quandaries abound. A fairground of delights now out on cd Homing In.
‘The great words and music adventure continues with The Ian McMillan Orchestra’s new CD! It’s a great thrill to work with musicians who understand my language and give it new dimensions with musical languages of their own!’ Ian McMillan
‘Homing In gathers together two years of writing and touring our unique blend of poetry, comedy and instrumental wizardry. We have numbers that range from humorous to poignant to angry. We also mark some new departures: I’ve written some of the words, and Ian sings some of them. Ian’s visit to Stanage Edge has, inspired our most tender number to date. It’s also the first time our fiddler Oli Wilson-Dickson has been recorded rapping.” Luke Carver Goss
