Our mini-album, simply entitled ‘Tyn Daga’, features 5 tracks arranged and produced by us and transports you from the light-ship off the Cornish coast, through an imaginative celebration of the magic of nature, and across to the boarder of Bulgaria and Macedonia, before returning you to rugged Cornish and Galician shores – with a quick stop off in Madagascar!
Lovingly recorded and mastered by our very own Alan Burton, it’s available as a CD at any Tyn Daga, and can also be previewed and purchased from http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/tyndaga. A great way to get an impression of our sound ahead of booking a band for your wedding, private party or special occassion. Individual tracks can be purchased for $0.99 and the full mini-album is $4.99.
