DAVE SWARBRICK - RAISON D'ETRE
Dave's latest masterpiece which features four EFDSS ‘Gold Badge’ award winners, previously unrecorded English music from the end of the seventeenth century and the first half of the eighteenth as well as a couple of self-penned tunes, together with a reworking of the opening track from Dave Swarbrick’s first ever album. A must have!
WINDY GYLE BAND - FORCE 6
You have read their story in Issue 88, now hear the album! Northumbrian music played on smallpipes, fiddles, guitar, harp and mouthie, with a perfect blend of tradition and energy.
NICK WYKE & BECKI DRISCOLL - BENEATH THE BLACK TREE
Nick Wyke & Becki Driscoll are highly respected musicians, composers and workshop leaders from North Devon. This is a beautifully crafted album of tunes and songs from the English fiddle tradition, infused with atmosphere and passion.
STEWART HARDY - HAWTHORN'S SWEETER SHADE
This album encompasses over 300 years of English fiddling presented beautifully and imaginatively on fiddles and viola (sometimes solo, sometimes tracked) by Stewart himself. The spread of historical sources promises and delivers mouth-watering variety, which is further enhanced with more recent compositions.
ALBIREO - NORTHERN CROSS
Since forming in 2001, Albireo have become firm favourites in the Greater Manchester area. Their sound very clearly retains its English roots, whilst being fresh, gutsy and attention-grabbing.
