  1. Here's some information about the latest recording from Simon Thoumire and Ian Carr. They got together (for the first time in 15 years) to play at the 30th Shetland Folk Festival. They had a blast and went on to record another album - their first was an LP recorded in 1990 called 'Hootz!' You can read more about them here: http://simonthoumire.com/simon-thoumire-and-ian-carr/ The new CD "He Thinks He's Invisible" from Simon Thoumire (English Concertina) and Ian Carr (Guitar) is now available to buy online (including as downloads).
