Multi-award-winning Scottish folksinger, songwriter and storyteller, Karine Polwart and 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 distills 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.
