**PRE-ORDER CAMPAIGN FOR SONGBOOK VOLUME 3 HAS NOW ENDED**
Thanks so much to everyone who ordered a copy. Duke will be signing and numbering the Limited Editions and will send out all the orders later this week!
A message from Duke....
I am delighted that a third volume of Duke Special songs is here! This volume has been transcribed by the wonderful Anita Mawhinney with additional work by her husband, Simon Mawhinney, and as with the previous two volumes, the design work is by Gary McIlwaine of Sparks Studio.
The songs mainly relate to the albums 'Under the Dark Cloth' and 'Oh Pioneer', with two additional songs that were B-sides during the release of the latter.
The piano scores are reduced by necessity, though we have tried to give good guidance as to the journey and flow of each piece and, of course, there are chords included for the ukulele and guitar players amongst you and an instruction at the beginning of each song as to how to approach it.
You are encouraged to play and sing the songs in whatever way works for you, ideally around the piano with family and friends and the sounds of Victorian traffic floating in from outside.
So, light the fire, don your best piano playing gloves and have fun!
Duke Special x
After the successful pre-order campaigns for reprinting Volumes 1 & 2, we launched another campaign for Volume 3 in July to help pay with up-front costs.
The Songbooks have arrived from the printers and they look amazing!
Duke will be sending out all the orders later this week, so if you ordered a copy, you won't have long to wait until you receive it.
The orders will be sent to the address on your Paypal account confirmation.
All UK orders will be sent via Royal Mail Standard 2nd Class post, which usually takes 2-3 working days, but due to possible postal strikes, there may be delays.
Orders outside the UK will be sent via Standard Air Mail and depending on the
destination, could take 10-14 days to arrive.
If you have any questions about your order, please do not hesitate to get email us on the button at the bottom of the page.
