This CD has it all - derring-do, redemption, humour, perfidy, murder, gallantry - and lyrics combined with fine traditional musicianship which I believe will bring a tear to the most jaundiced music lover's eye
Traditional folk? I think it's fair to call it that. Certainly not as left-field as the Unthanks (from whence she hailed) or Alasdair Roberts, two of my other favorite contemporary folk outfits, but none the worse for that.
Great tunes, beautiful lyrics, magnificent vocals, inspiring harmonies and brilliant melodies from Jackie Oates and her accompanists. What's not to like?
