There and Back Again is:

Mae McAllister (Penny Whistles and Recorders)
Pip Ash (Violoncello)
Owen Woods (Pianoforte)

Mae McAllister is a composer, conductor and performer and in her spare time, probably a criminal mastermind. Pip Ash enjoys improvisation despite claiming not to know anything about chord progressions and says “sorry” a lot during rehearsals. Owen Woods was trained classically but spends most of his time either asleep, eating honey or playing folk music.


released August 12, 2012

This CD was recorded in Edgware in 2011 by Ross Henrywood. We are hugely grateful to Ross for making us sound more wonderful than we deserve. Other thanks to Mavis MacKenzie Cecil, for producing the CD artwork and Ollie King for technical assistance rendered. In addition, thanks to all of the composers who have so kindly let us record their tunes.

There and Back Again is probably the world’s only Folk Piano Trio (Piano, Whistle and 'Cello). We take a classical piano trio and ‘folkify’ it by replacing the violin with a whistle. Cunning.

Our style is semi-improvisatory; we take a tune, give it a chord sequence and then improvise. Our tunes are chosen because we like them and think that they have some sort of intrinsic musical merit.
