  • Description

    Red Blooded, Scintillating and Infectious follow-up to' Huinka'. This album takes The Chair's reputation and spins it round on its head. The second coming of Orkney's wild eyed islanders, 'The Road to Hammer Junkie' cements The Chair's reputation for making high energy, infectious dance music. Still steeped in Orkney heritage The Chair draw on their roots for this entertaining follow-up to the hugely successful 'Huinka'. The Chair's 'big sound' is stretched over 11 tracks of tunes and songs laced with sparky grooves and spicy arrangements. With twin fiddles, accordion, drums, bass guitar, banjo AND hammer, these guys have achieved international acclaim since Huinka and now go on to the next level. The Chair manage to translate their barnstorming festival performances onto CD without losing any of the energy and dynamism of the live shows. This album is one to put a smile on your face, a bounce in your step and warmth in your heart. This is folk music for the 21st century, traditional and forward looking.
