Evans & Doherty are pleased to announce their New recording “30 Years of Folkin’ Around.” Thirty songs, some new, some old, all with fantastic lyrics & melodies!
In celebration of our 30th anniversary we have just released a double CD containing 30 songs. Some songs are old favourites, some are original songs and some include the voices of our family members.
Disc 2 opens with Brian’s father Charlie singing the first verse of a song, originally recorded in the 1970’s, called the Treacherous Waves
of Loch Muck. Kevin’s son Stan and daughter Caeligh are also heard singing on some of the choruses throughout the recording. Brian’s son Aidan sings on his first ever recording, Mademoiselle Voulez Vous Danser. We even included patrons of the Old Triangle in Halifax on The Snow Shanty.

Kevin receives gold & platinum records from EMI rep Barry Kent for his song “Christmas Memories.” The song is the title track of John McDermott’s Christmas recording.
Fresh from his recent sucess writing the title track for John McDermott’s “Christmas Memories” (for which he received gold and platinum awards), Kevin’s reputation as a world class songwriter is further enhanced by the sucess of his song “The Orchard”. Irish singer Sean Tyrell’s recording of “The Orchard” has recently been named Best Folk Album and Roots/Traditional Album of the Year in Ireland. To add to this, Canadian music legend Stompin’ Tom Connors has just released Kevin’s song “Silver Sea” on his latest recording, a great compliment considering Stompin’ Tom isn’t known for recording other people’s material.
