New Releases

NEW RELEASE: Lowp - Drive Away Dull Care

Picture: 

Lowp is a five-piece band which has been busy on the North East folk scene since their 2010 debut. The songs and tunes on their first album reflect not only their Tyneside upbringing but also imported influences from Ireland and the Borders.

NEW RELEASE: Tiarnan O Duinnchinn - Reggish Paddy

Picture: 

As fine an album of unaccompanied uilleann piping as you are likely to hear from a piper of this generation: I say unaccompanied, but solo would be a better description, as one of the most striking things about Tiarnán's playing is his copious and skilful use of the regulators.

NEW RELEASE: Zetor In The Kailyard - Collateral

Picture: 

This is the Scottish folk duo of Roddy Johnston and Kate Badcock, who play flute, piano, sax, pipes, fiddle, guitar, bombarde, and more (in addition to singing). Formed three years ago, this debut release combines traditional music and themes with some looping technology.

NEW RELEASE: Various Artists - The Complete Songs Of Robert Tannahill Vol 4

Picture: 

The fourth and penultimate volume in Dr Fred Freeman’s landmark recording series The Complete Songs of Robert Tannahill.

NEW RELEASE: Tom McConville - Sailing To The Far Side Of The World

Picture: 

This CD is a perfectly balanced summary of the enduring talent that is Tom McConville – a fiddler that the late, great Dave Swarbrick described as a great player, and a great singer of the songs of his native North East.

NEW RELEASE: Arthur Knevett - Simply Traditional

Picture: 

Simply Traditional is a long overdue and very welcome CD from Arthur Knevett, a well respected and fine interpreter of traditional song.

NEW RELEASE: Vicki Swan & Jonny Dyer - Paper Of Pins

Picture: 

Paper Of Pins is Swan & Dyer’s 7th album and has all their usual elements; refreshing arrangements of folk classics alongside self-penned offerings that mix traditional and contemporary folk with baroque, Music Hall and even classical sounds.
