Multi-award-winning Scottish folksinger, songwriter and storyteller, Karine Polwart & pianist and composer, Dave Milligan present 'Still As Your Sleeping' - an intimate and elegant 10 track collaborative album recorded in Pencaitland, East Lothian during summer 2021. Karine Polwart's previous solo release, 2019's Karine Polwart's Scottish Songbook reached the UK Top 40 album charts, and toured major UK venues, including The Barbican in London and The Usher Hall in Edinburgh.

Dave Milligan is a renowned Scottish jazz pianist, improviser and composer, whose writing and arranging often distils folk and traditional influences. His creativity and versatility has secured him musical director and band leader roles for many large-scale collaborative projects.

Karine and Dave's 10 track album 'Still As Your Sleeping' is threaded through with images of stillness and flux, leaving and returning, and pivots of change. The album includes the timeless and poignant 'The Parting Glass' as requested by Margaret Atwood for her specially curated BBC Radio 4 Today programme in December 2020.

"One voice and one piano can hold a lot of space, a lot of feeling", says Polwart. "Some of these songs are brand new, whilst others have been on my tongue for two decades and more, which is as long as I've known Dave".

Both musicians live in the same Midlothian village of Pathhead, as does Jenni Douglas, who created the album's gorgeous, evocative artwork.

5 studio tracks featuring Karine with one of her favourite all-time bands (and good pals) LAU.

LAU are Orcadian Kris Drever (vocals and guitar), fellow Pathhead resident Martin Green (accordion and keyboards) and Seal Islander Aidan O’Rourke (fiddle). Recorded at the beautiful Heriot Toun Studio in The Scottish Borders, the opening and title track of “Evergreen” was composed in situ by all four musicians and is a wee bit of an experiment for all of them! There are versions of two modern folk classics in Dave Goulder’s “January Man” and Lal Waterson’s “Midnight Feast”, a reworking of a 1980s Scottish pop cult classic in The Blue Nile’s “Rags to Riches” and a a gorgeous plaintive closer in “Lord Yester”, from the repertoire of Scottish folk legends The Corries.

There are lots of existing musical links between Karine and the lads. Karine is a guest vocalist on LAU’s album “Arc Light” and appears also on Kris’s album “Mark the Hard Earth”. And there’s a jig on the trio’s cracking first album “Lightweights and Gentlemen” written for Karine’s wedding! Both Aidan and Martin in turn have graced Karine’s albums too: Aidan on “Faultlines” and Martin on “Scribbled in Chalk”.
