Biggar musican Jim Duncan has enlisted the help of his friends with his first solo album Down By The Riverside.
And the GreenGoblin frontman’s first album away from the band is not to be missed.
Recorded at the Washoose Studios in Crawfordjohn, it uses as much local talent as possible – from his GreenGoblin band mates all the way through to Biggar artist Aura Wallace, who has designed the art work.
Grammy Award winner Rob Ickes also guests on the album. He is at his brilliant best playing the dobro on the title track but it’s local vocalist Eryn Strachan who really shines on To the Sun.
