(December 2005) 3 tracks: It Never Snows * It Never Snows (acoustic version) * Both Sides Of The Tweed.

The Christmas single It Never Snows features Sandy, Ewan and friends including Jim Walker (drums), Chris Agnew (bass), Alison Smith (fiddle), Sheila Sharp (flute), John Currie (whistles) and Debbie Warren (clarsach).

Inspired by a number of things, Ewan wrote this song in the realisation that in Edinburgh we never get proper snow, the end of a strange and confusing relationship and listening to a lot of southern soul looking for some warmth.

The single also includes Both Sides Of The Tweed, a song that has become indelibly linked to Ewan over the years of performing around Scotland.

Sandy and Ewan have been touring together around such venues as The Star In The Square Folk Club and The Lismore in Glasgow, Leith Folk Club, and Hootenannies in Inverness. Together they play a mixture of Scottish, Irish and English traditional songs and tunes, together with contemporary folk songs and original compositions.

Ewan Wilkinson was brought up in the Scottish Borders, and has a strong grounding in the Scottish song tradition as well as a unique insight into the music south of the border. Sandy has toured and recorded extensively with Burach, Seelyhoo, The Sandy Brechin Band and his ceilidh band The Sensational Jimi Shandrix Experience.

"As well as originals they play exquisitely through centuries-old songs, all of which are liable to be hummed on the way home. 4/5" (Three Weeks Magazine)

"Accordion bellows boldly blow where no box has blown before." (Archie Fisher)
