The Adventures of John Paul Jones - Alan Reid & Rob Van Sante: ‘The Adventures of John Paul Jones’ is a unique folk album that catalogues the life of the fascinating Dumfriesshire born sailor who achieved fame and notoriety during the American War of Independence and became known as the 'Father of the American Navy'. The story of John Paul Jones is one of sea battles, intrigue and scandal (and perhaps even murder?…)
Alan Reid has written all the songs and music, composing pieces in the folk styles of all the different countries Jones spent time in. The duo are joined on the album by John Martin (fiddles, mandolin), Wendy Weatherby (cello), Ian Fairbairn, late of Jack the Lad (fiddle), Mark Chillington (drums) and brothers Eric and Nicholas Hueber from Mulhouse in France (flute, bombarde, accordion, fiddle).
