“With Written in Water, Shooglenifty & Dhun Dhora have realised a beautiful dream and produced an album of exciting, intoxicating, exceptional music” – Neil McFadyen, Folk Radio UK
Shooglenifty's eighth studio release is very special as it is a collaboration with Rajasthani supergroup Dhun Dhora. The album was recorded in the Mehrangarh Fort, Jodhpur in September and October 2017. Written In Water is dedicated to the band's late fiddler Angus R Grant, and Dhun Dhora's dholak player Roshan Khan Manganiyar who passed away in February 2017. It features Laura Jane Wilkie on fiddle.
