Product description

The Furrow Collective is a critically acclaimed English/Scottish quartet consisting of four distinctive and talented performers – Lucy Farrell (fiddle, viola, voice), Rachel Newton (harp, fiddle, voice), Emily Portman (banjo, concertina, voice) and Alasdair Roberts (guitars, voice). The group formed in 2013, drawn together by a shared love of traditional song and balladry and an open, intuitive approach to collaboration. They mostly focus upon material from English and Scottish sources, occasionally turning their attentions further afield in their quest for intriguing songs.

Their debut 'At Our Next Meeting' was recorded with award-winning producer Andy Bell; it was variously heralded as 'a quietly triumphant set' (The Guardian), 'a real treat' (Bright Young Folk) and 'one of the finest collaborative albums of the past few years' (Folk Radio UK). Boasting a stripped-back power, the album led to nomination for Best Group and Best Traditional Track in the 2015 BBC Radio Two Folk Awards and a live session on BBC Radio 2. 2015's five-song EP 'Blow Out the Moon' was similarly well-received, resulting in another Best Traditional Track nomination the following year.

Again produced by Andy Bell and building on the success of its predecessor, 'Wild Hog' shows a marked development in the group's sound and approach, featuring guest musicians Alex Neilson (Trembling Bells) on drums and Stevie Jones (Sound of Yell) on double bass.

In short a superb album which grows with each listen. Alisdair's usual wry humour in some of the songs and some superb female singing. Brilliantly arranged and a very haunting version of Barbara Allen.

All 4 of the participants here have other main projects they are involved with, so this is only an occasional ensemble, and their 2nd full album together. The opening track Wild Hog in the Woods is one of my favourites, it has an Appalachian skiffle feel to it, with the addition of Stevie Jones on double bass and Alex Neilson on drums driving things along at a rambunctious pace . Alasdair Roberts vocals are always distinctive, with a Scottish lilt and high pitch, perhaps not to everyone's taste, but different to anything else around.
They cover a wide variety of traditional tunes which different band members of the band have individually discovered, researched and brought back for the group to weave their magic on. The popular ballad Barbara Allen is lead by Emily Portman's singing, on this version there is a different outcome to the more standard version . Rachel Newton's singing on track Prince Heathen is clear and assured, growing in confidence taking a lead vocal role. Lucy Farrell's singing on Polly Vaughn is carefully measured on a quietly sparse almost spooky arrangement.
There are a couple of more modern folk songs at the end of the album, The Maiden Hind learnt from Chris and Pete Coe's version, and beneath the Window of My Cell, a version of which was published by Ewan MacColl and Peggy Seeger. There is also a waulking song from the Isle of Skye sung in Gaelic admirably by Rachel Newton, I can't understand a word, but it sounds beautiful, one of the album highlights, a great performance .
Overall this is a more confident and assured collection moving on from their debut, and all the performers have continued to develop in their own right on different projects in the interim, but they obviously enjoy these sporadic get together's as a shared group ensemble, with each of them taking the lead at times, in a collaborative group enterprise that feels fresh and has a spontaneity about it of a live recording, not over rehearsed.
