Now available as a double-album, John McCusker’s two brilliant solo albums, Yella Hoose and Goodnight Ginger, are newly remastered with extended sleeve notes by Phil Cunningham and expanded deluxe packaging including a 16 page booklet. The tunes, mainly self-written, vary between reels and airs on both albums; many of them written for friends and family, but also a biscuit factory, a deli, even an orangutan. What matters to McCusker translates directly into his music—Even though the majority of the tunes are new on both CDs, McCusker has managed to give them a traditional feel. With both albums, McCusker surrounds himself with some of the most talented musicians around, including: Phil Cunningham, Michael McGoldrick, Tim O’Brien, Kate Rusby, Darrell Scott and more.

While initially emerging via the folk scene, John has long been renowned for his skill at transcending musical boundaries. As a live guest, he has shared stages with Bonnie Raitt, Patti Smith, Steve Earle, Roseanne Cash, Linda Thompson, the Waterboys, Idlewild, Paolo Nutini and Jools Holland. In the studio, his playing has graced recordings by Mark Knopfler, Paul Weller, Teenage Fanclub, Ocean Colour Scene, and many more. In recognition of his multifarious talents, John was also presented with The Spirit of Scotland award for music in 2001, and was named Musician of the Year at the 2003 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.
