Product description

Product Description

"The Furrow Collective delves into an obscure world of balladry at its darkest and quirkiest. At Our Next Meeting brings gems from the traditional repertoires of four of the finest folk musicians from both sides of the English/Scottish border. Daringly exposed, unaffected voices are accompanied by harp, guitar, viola, concertina, banjo, fiddle and musical saw. With a bold, improvisatory approach, their focus is to capture the raw edges and fleeting magic of narrative song, with storytelling at the centre.

Emily Portman and Alasdair Roberts are both celebrated for their original, folklore-influenced songwriting and have collaborated on several previous albums. Lucy Farrell and Rachel Newton are bewitching solo artists, sought-after session players and long-time members of The Emily Portman Trio.

Brooding gallows tales of hedonistic exploits are embodied in the opening duet Wild And Wicked Youth and The Outlaw Of The Hill . Epic ballads of disguise, trickery and true love are interpreted with finesse in Hind Horn and King Henry , both set against lush instrumental backdrops with rousing refrains. The atmospheric soundscapes of Skippin Barfit... , Henry Lee , Johnny my Man and Demon Lover display a refined, minimalist intensity and gripping vocal delivery. The Furrow Collective masterfully portray heartbreak and desolation in The Blantyre Explosion and an inspired interweaving of two parallel tales in Handsome Molly and Our Captain Calls . While each vocalist has their own accomplished style, their harmonies shine out in folk hymn Wondrous Love and the disarming closing track I d Rather Be Tending My Sheep .

Warmly accessible yet raw and uncompromising, At Our Next Meeting shows a breadth of Scottish and English folk traditions with four artists at the height of their powers."


The Furrow Collective are an intriguing gathering of four distinctive singers and instrumentalists with a bravely sparse and compelling new take on traditional songs...From Roberts' gallows story, The Outlaw On The Hill, to Farrell and Portman's sad and exquisite reworking of Handsome Molly and Our Captain Calls, it's a quietly triumphant set - **** --Robin Denselow, The Guardian, January 30th 2014

A mouth-watering collaboration finds Alasdair Roberts keeping company with likeminded spirits Emily Portman, Lucy Farrell and Rachel Newton on a brooding selection of some of the darkest, most oblique ballads in the folk canon. it's lo-fi stuff but the sparing, acoustic accompaniments and relatively simple deliveries are entirely in keeping with the weird bleakness of the material. --Colin Irwin, Mojo, March 2014

The smiling assassin, Emily Portman's knack of unwittingly luring you into tales of poisonous intrigue is uncanny and in Roberts, Farrell and Newton her partners are similarly adept at gently appalling you - fRoots, March 2014;

Some kind of argument will always exist about the relevance of generations-old ballads like those on this record, but surely the fact that they still exist and are still performed is testament to their lasting significance. It is the skill of the performance that brings out the best in old songs and allows the universality of their themes to come to the fore, and there are few more skilled artists working in folk music now than the four that have combined to make At Our Next Meeting one of the finest collaborative albums of the past few years - Thomas Blake, folkradio.co.uk;

Lucy Farrell, Emily Portman, Rachel Newton and Alasdair Roberts are all artists in their own rights, having performed alone or in other ensembles. As such, this new and very exciting release - celebrating balladry from the finest folk traditions of both Scotland and England - is a real treat...At Our Next Meeting is an exemplary example of the importance and relevance of balladry in the 21st Century, specifically in its ability to satisfy the human desire to hear a good story. --Rebekah Foard, brightyoungfolk.com
