    Greetings from Russia! Bought "Black Water" while on holyday on Skye, by the recommendation of the music shop keeper, really enjoyed the whole CD!

    Do you mean the one with Eamonn Coyne? It was an amazing version of Honk Toot, which they called "Honk Tout de Suite", I think.

    Just been watching him supporting Kate Rusby, and there was a phenomenal air near the end of the set. Going to have to dig out the Black Water album, but anyone know what the air might have been?

    I just bought Black Water. Stunning. Every track is an absolute joy. A real treasure. I'm so glad I happened to catch a play of Navigator on Radio2 the other week. I love little finds like this.
