Product Description

Two new kids on the Folk block who draw on a range of influences to create exciting music in an honest, straightforward, compelling way. "Greg Russell plays an sings with a maturity and emotion that belies his tender years. It is so rare to find new performers who have the confidence to play with this delicacy of touch and yet to sing in such a heartfelt way. He will, I think, go far". These comments by BBC Radio 2's Mark Radcliffe give a very accurate summary of 19 year old Greg. In these days when so many young singers are trying too hard to be different, to come up with something distinctive, it comes like a breath of fresh air to discover Greg Russell who just seems to sing for the hell of it in a very natural way. He is not afraid to tackle traditional songs, songs by a variety of writers and even pen some himself without feeling the need to keep one eye on what critics or those who vote in awards might think. There's a straightforward honesty about the way this young man approaches his work which is appealing. The power and conviction in his delivery is compelling and his teaming up with someone so formidably talented as 16 year old Ciaran bodes well for the future. They combine to provide an accomplished stage presence and come across as likeable performers which translated into the studio setting. Ciaran Algar is a member of the Young Folk Award semi finalist band Tri. Together they draw on a range of influences to create exciting music both with energy and also with delicate feeling. "I was astounded at the power of Greg's voice coupled with clear diction and the emotion that the song deserved. Their presentation skills were far beyond their years" Tykes News

Our admiration and respect should go to Paul Adams at Fellside Recordings for yet another coup. Not only did he manage to promote and nurture a certain Spiers & Boden burgeoning recording career but it now looks like he might have hit bulls-eye again with young whippersnappers Russell & Algar. Opening with the ever popular tale of "The Two Magicians" with its shape-shifting (remember Disney's Mad Madam Mim & Merlin in "Sword In The Stone") miscreants the duo inject good humour and a swinging style that comes across in a rippling tsunami performance that I haven't heard since the days of Fox & Luckley. From an instrumental point of view I hope that Ciaran's dynamic fiddle showcase of established chestnuts including "The Clumsy Lover Set" will inspire a new generation to engage with the `tradition' and not totally rely on clever but ultimately anodyne self-compositions. Having said that, its Russell's well researched choice of contemporary songs including "Love Is Life", "The Dancing" and his own not inconsiderable title track that shows a maturity beyond his years. There's plenty here to keep those of us of a certain age entertained ("Ashokan Farewell", "Icarus" and "On Raglan Road" etc) with a knowing, affectionate smile whilst Greg and Ciaran have a certain instinctive edge that will engage a younger audience. Not to harp on too much about `youth' being on their side but if this intuitive, personable duo can maintain their up-beat attitude as much as they have displayed on this album it will perhaps come as no so surprise that our antiquated `scene' is in safe hands.[...]

An amazing album, from two lovely lads. Me and Dad have really enjoyed listening to it :3 Arrived very quickly and cloud player allowed me to listen straight away, it's just a shame some of the song names were mixed up!

I bought this after hearing this pair at a festival...the music is stunningly beautiful, even more so when one considers the ages of the performers. A lovely album full of haunting songs.
