This is the highly anticipated second release from Jimmy Aldridge and Sid Goldsmith. Their new album ‘Night Hours’ is a powerful collection of songs that brings a new relevance to the traditional music of the British Isles and showcases some poignant compositions. The album links the hardship of working people throughout history with the struggles of marginalised communities today, but it achieves it with a lightness and musicality that makes the album a joy to listen to. Over the last three years the duo have built a reputation on the UK folk scene for arresting and moving performances. There is an integrity that shines through their performances, where a sense of justice and morality underlie every song. This CD certainly reinforces their growing reputation.
