George Stevens - A Toad In The Hand
Multi-instrumentalist and instrument maker George Stevens has a taste for rhythm rather than melody which comes through on several tracks here. His music is all original, but in a folky rootsy style. The roots can be from Africa, Southern Europe, England or the Celtic fringe - or mix and match - and the instrumentation centres around Stevens' bouzouki and what we nowadays generally think of as French bagpipes. Stevens is joined by friends on fiddle, guitar, gurdy, keyboards and loops: he provides the percussion himself, and his arrangements are generally somewhere between eighties French music (La Bamboche, Melusine, Bleizi Ruz) and English outfits such as Blowzabella or Fotheringay.
