Kenny Anderson, Scotland. Anderson is a prolific Fife musician and head of Fence Records, described on their own website as a collective of musicians, artists, craftsfolk, chancers and slackers. Previously Anderson operated as singer-songwriter for the bands Skuobhie Dubh Orchestra and Khartoum Heroes, but found he was beginning to move in a different musical direction. With a new blueprint to write songs with relatively few chords in a bluegrass style, save for over-elaborate bluegrass ditties, Anderson began a stripped-down approach in both musical material and instrumentation. Under the auspices of Fence he began a project of CD-R albums now numbering more than 20, beginning with 1998s Queen Of Brush County. Commercially his Fence discography begins with Kenny And Beths Musakal Boat Rides, a round up of the earlier CD-Rs and an album taken up by Domino Records.
