Grant / Thompson CD

Cover of Kay Grant / Daniel Thompson CD: 'quite pleased to be playing under a birdcage, that doesn't have a bird in it'

I’m quite pleased to announce the release of my CD with guitarist Daniel Thompsonquite pleased to be playing under a birdcage, that doesn’t have a bird in it.

It features two live concerts we played in 2019 and 2021.

Documenting our duo has been a long time coming, as Daniel and I have played together for many years. These two appearances seemed fitting as we both felt really great after them. 

The title is taken from an impromptu observation Daniel made before the first of these gigs, and in fact became the moniker of Empty Birdcage records, the label on which the CD has been released.
