Vin Garbutt is one of the most genuinely popular artistes that the folk revival has produced. He is also a writer who is not afraid to tackle the big issues. Popularity and through-provoking songs are generally an uneasy mix and the fact that Vin has sustained this over 30 years says something about him. This album captures Vin at his best - in front of an audience.
