New Releases

NEW RELEASE: Peter & Barbara Snape - Snapenotes


With a distinct musical identity and a growing reputation for providing an entertaining menu of good songs, all well sung and played with commitment, passion and enjoyment, Peter and Barbara Snape are two fine performers who have the knack of seamlessly mixing well-crafted arrangements of traditional songs with an eclectic collection of more light hearted/humorous songs, moving with ease from emotional depth to roller coaster highs.

NEW RELEASE: Si Barron - Sweet Billy Caution


Si Barron is a folk singer, songwriter and self-taught musician from Devon. Known as one half of Barron Brady (alongside Rosalind Brady), he is well known in the folk clubs and venues around the UK. This solo CD showcases his rich voice and exemplary guitar work on 11, mainly traditional songs, revealing a deep relationship with traditional English music and a gift for interpreting it.

NEW RELEASE: Josie Nugent & Brian Stafford - The Caves Of Cong


This is the debut CD from this Belfast based fiddle and uilleann pipes duo which pays homage to the music of some old (and some newer) collections of Irish music. Some of the melodies here are unusual versions of commonly known tunes – many may not have been heard in living memory.

NEW RELEASE: Lynched - Cold Old Fire


Lynched are a four-piece traditional folk group from Dublin, Ireland, who combine distinctive four-part vocal harmonies with arrangements of uilleann pipes, concertina, Russian accordion, fiddle and guitar. Their repertoire spans humorous Dublin music-hall ditties and street-songs, classic ballads from the Traveller tradition, traditional Irish and American tunes, and their own original material.

NEW RELEASE: Andy Kenna - Old Ports Of Call: The Maritime Songs Of Bob Watson


Andy Kenna is a renowned vocalist and musician, singing shanty songs and playing treble and baritone concertinas.

NEW RELEASE: Kevin Madden - The Sugar Loaf


Kevin Madden is a former All-Ireland and All-Britain winning fiddle player from the vibrant Manchester Irish music scene. He has extensive experience playing in ceili bands and sessions and this, his debut release, is a traditional fiddle album which sees him bring all these experiences to fruition.

NEW RELEASE: Mike Nicholson - Remember Me


Mike has been involved in the folk music scene since 1989 combining a traditional singing style with contemporary material. He draws his audience to him through an unassuming approach which only asks that the listener might share his love of singing and of the songs. He's so completely comfortable with himself and the songs he's singing, that his relaxed de-meanour and rich, bass baritone voice can totally beguile an audience within minutes.

NEW RELEASE: McNeill & Heys - Any Other Morning


Guitarist Jack McNeill and violinist Charlie Heys return with their fourth studio album forged from fresh sounds, stories and exciting new instrumental textures.
