Product description

Product Description

Former BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winners and established favourites of the international folk scene, the Anglo-Australian duo present their 5th release as a duo but first album of all-original material.

Kerr and Fagan have wowed folk audiences around the world since forming in 1995, touring constantly in the British Isles and taking their sought-after sound to Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Eire and the Benelux. In 2000 they won the BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for Best Newcomers, followed in 2003 by the Best Duo award. The two trade lead vocals throughout Twice Reflected Sun to bring their new material to life, presenting songs that, much like James and Nancy, have roots in the soils of two wildly different landscapes, but which trade on universal themes that transcend national boundaries: love, war, migration, poverty and the future of the Earth.

Among a plethora of extra-curricular collaborative projects, Nancy Kerr previously made two albums as a duo with Eliza Carthy while James Fagan plays as part of the Cara Dillon Band and is a recent addition to UK folk heavyweights Faustus. Together they have also recorded with many artists including Martin Simpson and Robert Harbron.

Review

Twice Reflected Sun forms a significant departure from previous releases in that instead of presenting a mix of traditional and contemporary writing, songs and tunes drawn from English and Australian sources, it consists entirely of self-penned material.

Twice Reflected Sun both well encapsulates Nancy and James' appeal and moves their creative endeavours to a higher plane of invention. -- FRoots October 2010

Format: Audio CD
A thing of beauty is a joy for ever - so goes the old saying. This new album from Kerr and Fagan is certainly a thing of beauty, from the photograph which inspired the title, to the superb musicianship of both artists. But above all, it's the haunting songs by Nancy Kerr which make this album stand out. And although Nancy's use of language is poetic and skilful - phrases such as "blue-jay morning feathering thorny memories" or "Dolerite skies over dry hills, blowing me home" stick in the mind - the songs fit easily into the folk music genre. Indeed, if you did not know they were new, you could easily be lulled into thinking that Nancy and James have uncovered some hitherto unknown collection of music in the roots tradition.

It's possible that some pedantic folk purists will turn up their noses - these are the sort of people who think that folk music should be preserved in aspic - but for those of us who are rather more broad-minded in our outlook, - indeed to anyone who has enjoyed the Kerr and Fagan collections so far - this new addition is very welcome. I can't stop playing it!

Son came home for Christmas and bought a couple of CDs for me and wifey. This one and David Garrett the violinist. Both stunning albums, but the tunes on this one just stay in your head. It has been a long time since I played a CD to death, but this is superb. Try something different, there are some awesome songs on this.

In a whirl of activity Nancy has produced nine new songs, each one of which has its own unique feel. Along with two relaxed and beautiful tunes from James this adds up to one deeply satisfying experience with the usual excellent singing from both of them, complemented by stunning musicianship - the keyword here being "complemented". The songs are allowed to speak for themselves and there's no breaking off to show us how clever they are before returning to the song - they don't need to! There is a feeling of "completeness" and maturity about this album - a touch of real class. One can only hope that it won't be missed by people who just want to hear the same old songs ploughed through over and over again with just the odd bit of gimmickry chucked in!!

You really will listen to this over and over. There are some lovely songs on hear: slow, quick, harmony and solo voice. Some are quite rousing while others are reflective. I saw these guys live in the summer and they were good fun. Nancy's voice is even better live, and she does actually play the fiddle whilst singing a different melody - very impressive for someone who can't walk and chew gum, like me! They've kept the traditional folk 'feel' but many songs are new. But never fear, you will enjoy all or most of them.

Nancy and James have delivered another stunner in Twice Reflected Sun. Whilst their albums are brilliant, if you want to hear them at their best then you must see them live.

Beautiful songs, beautifully sung. This duo are accomplished musicians and lovely singers. Their original songs will surely stand the test of time and become the future's folk songs. Nancy & James are in a class of their own.
