Beskrivelse fra produsenten:
Ewen Carruthers´ folksongs are unbelievably condensed matter, they are diamonds reduced to their essential artistic content, which have influenced lots of his fellow musicians - among them Allan Taylor and Mike Silver. His CD „when time turns around“ could and should relieve Carruthers from his status as being the all-time secret of the Inner Circle of folk music.

Ewen Carruthers - Vocals, guitar / Mike Silver - Guitar, backing vocals / Chris Jones - Guitar / Siard de Jong - fiddle, mandolin, waldzither, flute / Christina Lux - backing vocals / Fiona Simpson - backing vocals / Roger Nicholls - backing vocals / Iris Kramer - flugelhorn / Hrolfur Vagnsson - accordion / Brian O´Connor - tin whistle, flute / Wolfgang Beisert - mandolin / Beo Brockhausen - tin whistle, low whistle, accordion / Michel Poffet - double bass / Hans-Jörg Maucksch - fretless bass
Artist om dette albumet:
"I first got to know Ewen in the early seventies when I saw him perform in one of the local folk clubs. The song that impressed me the most was "Paris", and it still is one of my favorites. In the years since then we´ve had some good times together; times when we were both living alone, when we would meet at my house, eat, drink wine and try to write songs together, some good times in San Francisco and touring along the coast to Oregon. Ewen had an amazing ability to write a song from his imagination. I have to experience what I write about, but Ewen just dug into his imagination and created the most wonderful songs. When I last saw him he had recently returned from America and was looking forward to setting up home in Yorkshire and spending more time with his son David and his family. He was optimistic about the future and we sat in my garden drinking coffee - it was a sunny day and this is the way I will remember him. He was a fine man, a great songwriter and a good friend, and I miss him now, and I´m sure I always will." Allan Taylor
