Adrift

Adrift cover

"An absolutely magical CD." (Alan Ashton, OrganIst Magazine)

On her second CD with Grosvenor Records, Penny uses her Yamaha EL900 and Orla KX980 in a selection of her popular concert numbers. The title track, Adrift, was the theme music to the 1962 children's TV adaptation of Robinson Crusoe. In Bhuddist Chant, Penny uses the Japanese instruments and haunting pitch bend to full effect. March of the Royal Guards is a piece her mother-in-law learned as a girl - pure fairground! Rose Penny Red is from the pen of pianist, organist and composer Peter Hayward. Three of Penny's compositions also appear: Cat Among the Pigeons (an eightsome reel),  Father Time (written by Penny in her teens, influenced by Antonio Carlos Jobim) and Chat chat, Talk talk (written for a chat show).
