Customer Review

on 17 October 2013
Make room for a new favourite folk LP.

It contains a sound that is uniquely English, natural and honest yet dynamically eclectic. Packed with melody and verse crafted to perfection and finely produced.

The storytelling spanning the centuries and allowing you to follow its journey effortlessly with its evocative accompaniment. Scoping from ambient serenity and pastoral beauty, through to haunting and mesmerizing and leading well into foot tapping and head bobbing territory, all tinged with an energy of contemplative experimentation.

Anyone who has seen them play will already be aware of their uniquely skilled instrumental-ism, including Phil's sublime Dobro & Guitar playing that is perfect down to the subtlest levels, and his simultaneous harmonica and beat-boxing has to be seen to be believed. Hannah's fiddle playing is wonderfully layered and adds a varied and sometimes orchestral depth, and her guitar and banjo playing are equally effective.

Hannah's beautiful yet powerful vocal, and Phil's cool soft singing voice give the album further variation. Likewise, the vocal harmonies are notably varied and well-constructed. This album sees that musicianship and vocal charm reach new heights.

I expect this could, and should be a landmark album for the British folk scene, strengthening the roots and bringing it into full blossom.
