Simply Traditional is a long overdue and very welcome CD from Arthur Knevett, a well respected and fine interpreter of traditional song. His last recording was of the ballad Lord Bateman, his contribution to the Fellside CD, Ballads. Since then he has maintained his presence with guest appearances at folk clubs, festivals and traditional song gatherings as well as engaging in academic research on traditional song. This CD is an eclectic mix of 13 of Arthur's favourite songs and ballads.
Corrine Male, reviewing Arthur's booking at Tigerfolk in November 2016, wrote: “In my humble opinion this could be the best night of the year at Tigerfolk. ... overall, that voice: in the Coast Of Peru the notes held just to the edge of the change and dropping lingeringly over the precipice into the next phrase, such effortless control.”
