A.J. is playing guitar for Hayley Westenra's upcoming UK tour starting in October 2008 promoting her new album "River of Dreams". This is a best of album capturing the favourite songs from her three previous albums "Pure", "Odyssey" and "Celtic Treasure". There will also be four new tracks for which A.J. is providing the guitar. However, we can't tell you what they are, you'll have to buy the album.
Incidentally, in my local HMV, there was a dummy CD case in the Hayley Westenra section yesterday with the title of "River of Dreams - coming soon".
That's a good question. Usually, sales are not permitted prior to the release date. Having said that, the Special Edition of Pure was being sold at venues during the early part of the tour in November 2005 but that was only two or three days prior to its release. For it to be sold in Barrow, for example, is just possible but I think we would be pushing our luck for it to be on sale in Aberdeen which is 15 days early. I doubt if we will know for sure until the time comes.

Thank you for the track list Drew, but this might just be a bit too early to have it carved in stone that this is the final list- I believe that it is what is planned to be released and the final album will be quite similar, but one track or another may be swapped out- and there were supposed to be no less than four new songs- perhaps that was changed or by accident the typer put the name of an existing song up by mistake or forgot one- the possibilities are endless! However, thank you so much for the tracklist Drew!
PS- One track I pretty much can gaurentee will be on the album is River of Dreams!
