Reveal Records said:
Recorded in Scotland in Autumn 2012, ‘Storymap’ is Coyne & Drever’s brand new duo recording of trad folk and song. The uniquely talented Éamonn Coyne dazzles on both the banjo and tenor guitar. The highly rated, award‐winning vocalist Kris Drever arranges the trad songs, sings simply and disarmingly, and plays the guitar and mandolin. A host of talented musical friends feature on the new album including Eliza Carthy, Simon Bradley, Megan Henderson, Calum McIntyre, Nico Bruce, Eamonn Nugent and Alan Kelly (of the Eddi Reader Band).
``Two highly talented individuals whose spirited playing on this, their second album collaboration, is completely infectious. So it seems that a storymap is Coyne and Drever’s way of encouraging the listener to excavate, to discover tales buried deep in the foundations of this music. The arrangements are so clear, and the playing so deft and fluid, it’s a pleasure to have them as guides.``
