Hunting the Squirrel with Alex Borwick


Slow sliding horns & guitars w Alex Borwick

In the depths of 2020 pandemic lockdown, recording this tune with good friend (+ brilliant musician & producer) Alex Borwick was a consuming distraction, a joy, and a reaffirming way to keeping making music in collaboration – all the way between Ireland to Australia.
I hope you find some slow space & solace in it too.

Alex recorded his mesmerising horns in Dublin, I recorded some slide (and a few impro overdubs) in Morwell (Oz), & Alex smooshed them together.

Massive thanks to Al at Aldoc Productions for putting this beautiful little video together (& to Parvathi & Ananth for first requesting this tune!)

A traditional Irish tune arranged by Dan & Alex (inspired by The Gloaming).
