With each of the songs selected by Lina, this album serves as both a homage to her musical heroine, whilst at the same time broadening the. Toure is a major world music star, an African counterpart to Son House, 1 (Stern's, ), with vocalists Ousmane Hamady Diop and Baaba Maal. Almost immediately Touré Kunda's album É'mma Africa was released, and the Hugh Masekela, Youssou N'Dour, King Sunny Ade, and Ousmane Touré (switching.

Instead, we hear piano and synths, which brings to the music a different kind of atmosphere. In both cases, the essence of the music remains intact and if anything enhances the passion, rather than dilutes it, with the voices on both projects taking centre stage throughout. With each of the songs selected by Lina, this album serves as both a homage to her musical heroine, whilst at the same time broadening the appeal of Fado amongst new listeners.
Having formed in Boston just over ten years ago, the now Nashville-based trio Della Mae continues to deliver bold and confident performances with their latest album Headlight , their fourth full-length album release and first for five years.
If the cover illustration depicts a comic strip version of the trio holding aloft their various symbols of intent, the portrait on the accompanying lyric booklet seems to say so much more about their strength of character. These musicians mean business, their very name a reminder of the physical abuse of women through history and woe betide those unwilling to pay attention. Raised in both the UK and Belgium, his father being a former ambassador to Sierra Leone in Brussels, blues singer and musician Bai Kamara Jr returns to his African roots with an album entitled Salone Sierra Leone in the Krio language , which features fifteen new songs.
Vocally, Bai Kamara is right up with the best of them, full of confidence and assurance, without sounding overly derivative. Occasionally, the back story of an artist can appear to be infinitely more interesting than the product itself and Deborah Rose may just suffer from this with her new album The Shining Pathway. Well, perhaps not. The story is told so convincingly, that the fact and the fictional blend seamlessly together, detailing both the apprehension and excitement of the voyagers as well as the fears and uncertainty of the Wampanoag people whose lives were to change forever overnight.
Some of these locations are vividly captured in the songs as well as the vast ocean that lies at the heart of the voyage. One of the other important aspects of Numberless Dreams is the fact that Julie has managed to successfully transform a handful of poems by the celebrated Irish poet W.
Yeats into viable songs that truly work. Like many of those we have lost too early and who we seem to foist upon their legacy a sort of morbid and maudlin attachment, Nick Drake and Jeff Buckley spring to mind, the work deserves to be celebrated rather than mourned.
Martyn Joseph does this here, fourteen times over. Gren Bartley always provides a certain place for the listener to go, a place of meditation and repose, where the mixed up, muddled up, shook up world can do one. He does this by paying attention to the sonic possibilities of his beloved steel resonator guitar, which he treats with respect.
We had a taste of this back in the autumn of when the first helping of Quiet was released and Quiet II essentially continues where the last one left off. This is another great Sunday morning record. With members from Argentina, Mexico and the United States, the Buenos Aires-based string band Che Apalache provide enough diversity both in terms of their ethnicity and their musical style with an album chock full of surprises, from authentic Latin grooves and Bluegrass, by way of jazzy swing time rhythms and breath-taking dove-tailed four-part harmony a cappella singing.
With Joe Troop on fiddle, Pau Barjau on banjo, Franco Martino on guitar and Martin Bobrik mandolin, the quartet are equipped to take on complex arrangements, while remaining highly accessible and listenable. Yvonne Lyon is a hard-working, constantly evolving artist, with three completely different releases in the last two years. The latest of these is Songs for Christmas a set of festive songs. The collection brings together five original songs and seven reworked traditional songs.
A little layering on the voice is as perfect as fresh snow and just as uplifting. These two are definitely on my Christmas Folk Playlist for next year. Yvonne Lyon has a strong voice and a fine ability to put together songs. This is a strong collection that covers both the reflective and celebratory aspects of Christmas period perfectly.
Slip this on next December and people will singalong and greet these songs like classics and old friends. The album begins with the sound of a squeaky country gate opening three times, presumably to signify the arrival of the three musicians, before taking up their positions in a South Somerset field. The twelve instrumental compositions are delivered by this trio of empathetic Bristol-based musicians, Alex Vann, Pete Judge and Paul Bradley, who have an array of over fifteen instruments at their disposal, from acoustic guitar and mandolin through to the more exotic bowed psaltery, lyre and miniature harp.
I would suggest that in the castles, churches and tea rooms of South Somerset, should be placed alongside the cream teas, postcards and trinkets, as a true souvenir of this part of the world. Seamus Egan is a respected influential traditional Irish musician, founder member of Solas, and established film music composer. Early Bright perfectly brings those two strands together, showcasing Irish music while drawing in cinematic Americana, Folk and much more besides.
With a cover that looks like a fragmented Walker Evans American South rural landscape photo, or the sleeve of an expansive Pat Metheny ECM album, this is the music of a back road big sky road trip. There is a wonderful mix of acoustic and the more machine like huge bass notes with an infectious knotty rhythm. The resulting piece manages to mix together emotions in a surprising way. Seamus like Donal Lunny is a music that spins and excites you and pieces that enchant, twining round like mist or smoke.
On this track he manages to do both. If Early Bright was a soundtrack album, then this final track, playing under the credits suggests a stirring, emotional ending. The dozen songs included here are performed in both French and English and both are certainly equally appealing. Simply gorgeous. Some places make music, it comes out of the stones and the landscape.
At one time all of these islands were alive with music, Michael Chapman veteran journeyman folk musician, describes the 60s revival as a time when there was a folk club behind every tree. So Sounds from the Great Garden is an apt description of this harvest or showcase for the stories, songs, music and musicians of Lismore. Like a Ceilidh gathering, this is a lively collection of poetry, tales and music steeped in tradition and a sense of space.
The overall effect is beautiful. This is no cobbled together straight compilation, rather this is a carefully sequenced set of performances committed to tape at Trilaggan Studio on Lismore, with owner and musician Davy Clincart providing the musical glue that ties the album together.
Mentions of mobile phone signal and cotton wool grounding this metaphysical folk tale in the current day. This is a simply stunning set. Its breadth, its spirit and its intent are to be commended. The fact that across thirty four tracks and two hours there is no filler is a testament to the performers and their home. As a record of a place and a time this is a powerful statement. I also want to hear more by these performers, The Lismore Voices, Amy Bowman and Shona Wright especially have been on heavy rotation on the stereo.
With eleven band originals and just the one traditional adaptation, Frigg sweep through each of the compositions with a flair all of their own, a fine mixture of homegrown folk and American Bluegrass. Despite this, their music could only come from Scandinavia, a music easy to understand once heard.
I Like Your Taste in Music is right up with the best of them. There are also one or two guest appearances, which makes the Various Artists a little more various. Is there really a better function for music, than to touch you, intrigue you, impress you and to make you smile all at the same time? I stand in the dubious position of being undecided as to whether I prefer live or recorded music. Both have their good and not so good aspects.
In the case of Sam Lee, I tend to sit very much on the fence and find both thoroughly fulfilling. His voice is idiosyncratic and mannered, yet utterly believable and convincing, which sits comfortably on top of all the arrangements. Predominantly self-penned with just three additional traditional songs, Where the Wild Horses Roam is a delightful start to what promises to be a fruitful career as a recording artist.
Joined by Benji Kirkpatrick for much of the album, along with Tim Cotterell, Adrian Oxaal and Lindsay Oliver, this Al Scott-produced album is a remarkable debut and one that should be heard. If you walk along the Fortis Green road in the heart of Muswell Hill, you will come across the old Fairport House, where the band would noisily rehearse back in , taking part of their name from a wooden plaque screwed to the wall next to the front door.
This is perhaps a sign of the endurance of Fairport Convention, who are still together fifty-three years on and with original member Simon Nicol, whose parents owned the house, still at the helm. During the last half century Fairport have released over thirty albums of varying quality, many more if you count all the compilations and live recordings, and the band shows no immediate signs of slowing down.
What sets Elaine apart is that she can be big voiced and bluesy or understated as the line dictates within the same song. Think Duffy and that compelling mix of classic soul and modern. Lennon rides the swirl of sound recalling a confident Kate Bush. Some of the smoothness is stripped away on this emotional piano ballad.
Elaine delivers another confident swaggering vocal over a lively surprising arrangement, again we have vintage and modern overlaid. This is a sophisticated assured debut from a singer who delivers brooding classic beauty. Elaine Lennon manages to keep it interesting by blending in classic smooth country, pop soul, crooners jazz and still managing to weave together those elements into something that hangs together as a wonderful whole.
It all sounds up close and personal with Duke Levine and Jennifer Kimball helping out on both guitar and vocals respectively. A fine tribute to a fine song writer, father and mentor. Haiti has long been associated with Voodoo and Moonlight Benjamin takes these things seriously. With some pretty consistent guitar riffing throughout, Simido is infused with a rock sensibility that falls somewhere between Classic Rock and Punk, with a little Desert Blues injected in all the right places.
With all the song lyrics written by Benjamin and musical arrangements composed in collaboration with Matthis Pascaud, Simido stands as a fine follow up to its predecessor. Those who can enjoy both the ancient and the modern equally will probably enjoy this particular sonic blend.
Throughout the nine songs and tunes, the playing is exemplary, a showcase of dexterity and flair that ought to be heard far and wide. County Cork singer songwriter John Blek returns with his fifth solo album The Embers , which serves essentially as the third instalment of a four-part themed album series relating to the elements.
Throughout the album, like the other four before it, John maintains a high standard of craft in his songwriting, a clear and crisp finger picked guitar style and a mature and confident vocal performance. A voice that should be heard widely. With a powerful delivery throughout, each song is inflected with either an indie rock or country twang sensibility, each fuelled by raw emotion, both in terms of the writing and performance.
Just one man, one guitar and a bunch of stories from the heart. Sam Lewis performs nineteen songs from the stage at the Southern Grand Studios in his adopted home town of Nashville before a small audience, effectively making everything warm, cosy and atmospheric. Those familiar with the originals can fill in all the gaps in their heads without too much bother.
Do check out those earlier studio albums though, Sam Lewis , Waiting on You and Loversity Despite being recorded in the midsummer heat of June, suggested in the album title, notably an awkward time of year for these delicate instruments, the cohesive musicianship is still very much intact, perfectly pitched and delightfully vibrant. For a first outing, Mittsommer Sessions has set the bar pretty high for anything Deitsch might seek to follow it with.
With its attachment to Turkish culture, the acoustic instrument has been around for centuries and is immediately recognisable by its distinctive sound. This unique compilation, culled from a mammoth archive of such recordings, brings a new sense of vitality, both as a lead instrument and as an accompaniment or sparring partner to vocal performances.
The choices are varied, with each selection a demonstration of the versatility of the musicians involved, with some great performances throughout. As an introduction to the Saz and to Turkish music in general, look no further. That album opened the floodgates to a wealth of material that the legendary flat-pick guitar player recorded from the early Sixties onward, a good deal of them with Merle, one or two with his extended musical family and other such collaborations.
Blind from an early age, the Deep Gap, North Carolina musician was more than proficient on both guitar and banjo and became a much loved figure on the Old Time music and burgeoning folk scene, his soothing fatherly voice being familiar to many up until his death in This is the third album by the Colorado four piece. Two albums and a surprising Guns n Roses cover finds the band smouldering by turning down the heat. Acoustic sounds perfectly suit the intimate and effortless playing of the band.
A measured sophistication is the order of the day. The playing, with the shimmering mandolin and dobro against the growling bass is a delight as is the soulful vocal. A quiet storm, wafting acoustic instruments, percussive playing that creates pace and drive with some captivating soulful vocals. Since , Rachel and Becky Unthank have appeared in a variety of combinations, from their humble beginnings as a fine vocal duo, then doubling in size to a fine quartet, then a quintet, then a quintet with a brass section or a string section and occasionally both , then backed by a celebrated brass band to an entire philharmonic orchestra among other variants.
Deliciously in tune with one another, the trio traverse a variety of songs, many new to us, with the inclusion of just three that have previously been recorded by the band. Although these songs were all recorded live, from London to Newcastle and Dublin to Belfast, we should perhaps not consider it a live album as such, but rather, an exclusive studio album that just happens to have been recorded before audiences, the most natural environment for these songs to be performed and heard.
The ten compositions included were selected from twenty chosen for a residential music weekend held at Halsway Manor in Somerset and went on to be recorded in Shroton Church in Dorset. Quite lovely really. Circadian , if it truly is cyclical, comes from a darker phase in that cycle. The voice continues to be a delight, but it asks more questions and is a harder judge, over more angular, dirtier music.
Much of this album seethes with that Johnny Cash edge. By the end of the track her gospel roar and the electric guitar means the track burns like the most fired up Steve Earle. The whole song crackles with self-loathing and regret, laying everything bare in some dark lyrics. This is a song about quiet moments and the stuff you notice when you reflect, with Letitia celebrating and finding joy.
There is bite and passion in her voice, matched by the electric guitar as she rages against money, business and her own failings. Producer Josienne Clarke makes several appearances as a multi-instrumentalist collaborator, with the occasional vocal contribution, yet remains pretty much in the shadows, a whisper of encouragement here and there, sharing the love and the occasional joke. The Pine Hearts play well-oiled Bluegrass, with acoustic guitar, mandolin, double bass and three voices locking together like cogs on a machine.
With material mostly from their earlier albums, this is an album of live pared back revisits. Tracks are short, nothing overstays its welcome. Occasionally there are depths and power in The Pine Hearts version of this old time good time music. This is wonderfully recorded, beautifully played, feel good music that has bottled the immediacy and energy of a moment. This is probably why the thirteen songs appear so accessible upon first hearing them. The five songs lay bare her soul as she confronts her past and the journey thus far travelled, a hazardous journey it has to be said, filled with the trauma of childhood, the horror of an abusive relationship and all the anxiety that goes with such a journey.
Through the healing process of music, Aruba tackles her demons and addresses some of the issues in a Cathartic manner, whilst delivering a delicious vocal performance, augmented by some fine contemporary beats and tender melodies. Listening to these songs can fill you with sadness, but at the same time, a good deal of hopeful optimism.
I look forward very much to more from this promising artist. Like Edward E he has a lightness of touch on the keyboard, he is an inventive composer flowing across musical forms like water and like the Duke he has a way of grace, subtlety and beauty to dance music. The longer piece dances through different folk-dance rhythms.
It is from the start, bursting with ideas and invention. Its opening piano has little Randy Newman melancholic flourishes, joined by a loping band and western swing fiddle it becomes a Pixar theme. The saxophone is divine, straight out of classic Ellington.
The whole is expansive and cinematic, like Too Hot to Sleep. I love it madly and hopefully it will put a smile on your face in a time when we all need reasons to grin and moments to get lost in. Robert Severin is a British-Hungarian, Glasgow based singer songwriter.
Postcard From Budapest , a collection of acoustic biographical and reflective songs, accompanied by his guitar and the wonderful Innotet string quartet, is his debut release. With a voice that reminds me of Boo Hewerdine, or a reflective David Gilmour, Robert delivers intimate songs, beautifully accompanied. Roberts, clarinet and wordless vocal accompaniment alongside his picked guitar provides a poignant note on this beautifully observed piece.
Layered vocals, the radio and a mournful clarinet capture the mixed emotions perfectly and create poetry. Full of personal, poetic, reflective songs, delivered and lifted by wonderful playing and sympathetic arrangements this is an album of quiet time. This is the musical equivalent of spending a moment reading well-thumbed poetry in a quiet city square, as time stands still. An understandably tough time for the singer. Salt House is a class act. Salt House now return with their third release, maintaining the same personnel as on their previous album, with original members Lauren MacColl and Ewan MacPherson, together with Jenny Sturgeon making up the trio.
A tip top addition to a steadily growing collection of first rate albums. Waterbound is the third album by the Norwich-based folk trio and once again, the song choices are just right, both original and traditional, each well-constructed and delivered from the floor, so to speak. The now familiar pulsating beat of a good strong Sahara blues number always conjures up the summer festival season, where the mosh pit expands to the edges of the marquee, heads bobbing in unison to the immediately identifiable rhythms and predominant guitar licks.
These nomadic Kel Tamasheq musicians are sharp, street wise and youthful, but at the same time remain close to their traditions and take their music seriously. Guitarist Ousmane Ag Mossa has a similar charismatic presence of a Bob Marley or a Jimi Hendrix, a comparable charm as well as a sense of defiance, which almost insists that you be drawn in.
The music is also slightly mesmerising, its pulsating and trance-like rhythms immediately transporting the listener to an entirely different place and mind set. What do I know? With Charlie Stewart on fiddle and Graham Rorie on mandolin, Rebecca, a semi-finalist of the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award back in alongside Charlie, takes her influences and inspiration, based on the Traditional music of the West Coast of Scotland, and moulds it to her own specific style, which is both delicate and assured at the same time.
Scotland has a knack of producing some of the most notable singers in the world today and in particular those in the folk idiom. Siobhan Miller is one of those singers, whose reputation not only as a fine singer, but also a songwriter, performer and interpreter of traditional songs, is growing with each album release and each live appearance.
Though now very much a solo performer, the Midlothian-born singer falls into collaboration with apparent ease, on this occasion working alongside Kris Drever, Megan Henderson, Innes White, John Lowrie and Kim Carnie, not to mention husband Euan Burton. The repeated refrain that closes the song almost ensures that Siobhan is not going to be forgotten anytime soon.
An easy five. Rhode Island-based banjo picker and fiddle player Jake Blount explores the rich tapestry of traditional sounds from the Appalachians from the perspective of the Black experience. The album title alone gives us little doubt that Jake is unearthing deep roots throughout the album, with each of the fourteen songs and tunes entrenched in a folklore that stretches back to the homelands of Africa.
A fine engaging and earthy album. Sleep well John. Produced by Sean Lakeman and recorded in Dartmoor, Devon, Shakespeare Avenue is a showcase for ten original songs from the pen of Australian singer songwriter Carus Thompson. The songs are delivered in a clear and direct manner, augmented by some fine accompaniment courtesy of Sean, his brother Seth and his wife and musical partner Kathryn Roberts.
Brooks Williams, singer, songwriter, American born but long term UK resident is celebrating 3o years as a touring musician with Work My Claim , atypically Journeyman troubadour titled set. Again the flourishes of fiddle, played by McCusker, echoed beautifully by whistle add a sparkle and grace.
A soulful Christine Collister lifts proceeding heavenwards on the chorus. On the strength of this album, twenty ninth at least, there is plenty of evidence that this is very much the case. For this second album by Alan Young Serious Child , we see the indie folk singer-songwriter leave the city behind for the Sussex woods, which provides the inspiration for these ten songs. Produced by Boo Hewerdine, Time in the Trees also employs such diverse instruments as the Harmonium, Vibes, Dulcitone, Marxophone and that old Prog favourite, the Mellotron, all of which are essential in creating an ethereal feel throughout the album.
This is a soothing album, with a gentleness that mirrors the environment in which Young and his chosen musicians find themselves. A desire to get away from social media and back to the garden. The influences are widespread and cross regional, bringing to each of the selections a rich variety of diverse sounds. This music was performed in the cafes of Lyon towards the end of the last century, which must have been a delight to curious visitors, yet none of it appears to have dated much at all.
That playfulness has come at the right time when we all need some light relief, where just a certain turn of phrase can serve as a potent tonic. Expressive performances for those who like their string quartet music to swing a little more than that of Schubert. The Idumea Quartet, comprising Ewan Macdonald and Jane Rothfield on violins, Becka Wolfe on viola and Nathan Bontrager on the big boy, treat their respective instruments to some down home Appalachian folk music, which in turn has a way of lifting your spirits, suitable for any Saturday night barn dance.
The Cajun accordion is a single row diatonic accordion, different from the standard multi row versions played in Irish, English and European Folk Music. Peter Croft has been playing traditional music since the late 60s, he was inspired to take up the melodeon after seeing Tony Hall and a discovery of Cajun music in the mid 70s led to his protracted love affair with the Cajun Accordion. This album, recorded with Mark Jones on guitar and Hazel Fairbairn, fiddle and violin, at the Pump Room studios in Louth Lincolnshire, is the end of a process stretching back 46 years, to record Mountain Music fiddle tunes played on the Cajun accordion.
The tune flows beautifully, but his fingers are flying to make it sound that effortless. The tunes are carried by all three players with Hazel double tracking fiddle and viola. The title track for the collection is penned by Peter, merging Celtic and American music. The tune and the distinctive tones of the accordion and the fiddle make for great listening. Peter and Mark manage to sound like a band, with the low notes of the guitar becoming an anchoring stand up bass over which the accordion and the picking and strumming fly, this is real dance music.
Indeed the catalogue number of the album commemorates Albert and the date of the attack where he was wounded within the Battle Of The Somme. This closing set is played by Peter with all the focus on his glorious, rich, dancing and full bodied accordion. This is not dance music, there is a sombreness to the first tune, with a prouder step to the second tune, celebrating the survivors decimated but not defeated, marching, fading into the distance. This is a rich labour of love, fiercely, passionately played with grace, energy and always with bounce and life.
It is beautifully recorded and well presented, extensive sleeve notes from Peter with photos and illustrations, make this a rewarding documentary as well as an interesting musical journey through the music of The Blue Ridge Mountains depicted on the cover of the album.
Like many Birnam releases this is fine music, perfectly played and impeccably put together with attention given to all and every aspect, would that you could say that about every album release. The 77 year-old, Cornishman, a long-time resident of Powys, mid-Wales, makes such a good mature sound through these ten songs, with a confident and engaging delivery that appears to betray his years, both smooth and soulful with a touch of melancholy in places. Yep, I love this one, a real surprise.
The wonderful painting on the cover by David Coyne, part Glen Baxter illustration, part Rene Magritte, gives a clear indication of the dark mystery and wonder inside. Surprises abound throughout, the lovely organ, the juxtaposed harmonies at the end. Again the production and the soundscape is expertly managed with dense layers that give way to moments of sparse purity. Luke and Kati deliver superb vocals, while the layered instruments rise and fall around them giving you so much to listen to.
This is a song of brooding restraint, the sitar like Dobro, the funeral drums and rich imagery like the gothic best of The Handsome Family. This, with its space and atmosphere is a real grower. The couplets are wonderfully surreal and as always the vocals are a delight. Those glorious vocals and harmonies have been joined by grainy layers of instruments, burnishing or setting those duo or trio vocals perfectly and often surprisingly.
As is the usual case with Gigspanner, in all its various incarnations, the musical arrangements are superb throughout, a lesson in dexterity and drive, delivered with passion and flair and a clear understanding of traditional material and its value.
Even after a generous 63 minutes, we are left wanting more. Masterful, as expected. As such it must be completely unique, in that it gives a comprehensive picture of modern English town and community life from a very unusual perspective. Tom takes his fiddle, case and collecting hat to a random town or village, sets up in the high street or other suitable pitch and busks. The size of the place or its importance in our landscape, culture or economy is not relevant to its inclusion in the project, but the sheer diversity of the locations visited adds immensely to the appeal of the book.
His objective was to make enough money from busking to cover his travel, accommodation and sustenance costs for the duration of his stay. After each visit he quickly wrote down his experiences and published them on-line as a web-blog. Thus there is certain freshness in all his writing. The web blog attracted a lot of attention through social media from his many friends and connections in the folk world. Feedback from readers encouraged Tom to turn the blog into a proper book. The recording is a reference to some of tunes he played whilst busking and has been released at the same time as the book.
The book is a modern masterpiece of observational writing. In his role as a street busker Tom was in a unique position to stimulate random responses from the passers-by. Some are welcome, some not so much, but he makes enough money in contributions to get by, even if sometimes he has to compromise a little on comfort. His time in Cornwall being one such example, where he had no option but to sleep in his car overnight. He takes time to explore each town, noting the many unique, unusual, sometimes funny, sometimes downright weird, sad or disturbing sights events and inhabitants.
Everywhere he visits is described with reference to the history and character of the area. The way he recounts his experiences is both interesting and entertaining and many will raise a smile. His comments are only judgemental in that whenever he perceives unfairness or injustice this is commented upon very clearly revealing his natural social conscience.
Tom interacts with the people he meets, from the ordinary man, woman, child or dog in the street, and also the homeless, the beggars, those who are down on their luck. These contributions are not always monetary either and are an endless source of wonder to him, especially the occurrence of the occasional sausage roll in the collecting hat.
Overall the majority of the people that he meets have redeeming features and many open up to him with tales of their life, which is perhaps one of the unexpected and most interesting of outcomes. Tom has commented subsequently that he may have unknowingly documented a lost way of life in England.
Some of it good, some of it truly inexcusable. I can almost guarantee that you will read the book avidly from cover to cover. For instance, he sees the goodness in the hearts of people of Bradford, who with their young families spontaneously begin dancing in the street to his tunes, while in the next paragraph he recounts the pathetic struggle of homeless people dragging themselves from one shop doorway to another to avoid the attention of the police.
The album is infectiously foot tapping, being the kind of music that can grab the attention of those passing by in the street and includes a selection of traditional tunes as well as some written by Tom and other collaborators. It was recorded in an old Methodist chapel in the Peak District, which gives it a very distinctive bright and live feel. Taking inspiration from the rich Griot traditions of West Africa, the Senegalese singer, songwriter and musician Kadialy Kouyate puts a contemporary spin on seven original songs, each accompanied by his expressive mastery of the Kora.
A Golden Thread is an album of recently composed anthems, traditional re-workings and an updated title song, originally from the pen of another noted folk troubadour, the late Pete Seeger. Nothing here is preachy, pointy-fingered or overtly angry, but rather hymn-like, meditative and humble, yet still gets the point across.
Galway crooner Ultan Conlan returns with ten soul searching songs, working alongside noted bluegrass producer Sean Watkins and a gathering of top drawer musicians that includes Don Heffington, Sebastian Steinberg, Gabe Witcher, Rich Hinman and Tyler Chester, all of whom have worked with a veritable list of notable contemporary songwriters. With bassist Emmanuel Ofori at the helm, the musicians create a sound that demands increased volume to the norm and never mind the neighbours.
If the vocal tracks are served up tastefully, then the instrumentals are at the very least a showcase of classy musicianship in themselves. Despite her youth, Canadian singer Maya Rae is in possession of an extraordinarily mature voice, a voice very much versed in jazz, as exemplified in the songs on her debut album Sapphire Birds , made up largely of jazz standards with just a couple of originals, including the title cut. For her second release, recorded and released whilst still under the voting age, Maya stretches out her writing abilities, co-writing all eleven songs with her brother Gabriel Evan.
Singing professionally since the tender age of twelve, Maya has performed widely, occasionally with some notable Canadian jazz musicians and for this release, she has sought the assistance of the cream of contemporary Americana, including Steve Dawson, who also produces, Kai Welch, JT Nero and Allison Russell, with a fine rhythm section of Jamie Dick on drums and John Estes on bass.
A class act and a performer to watch out for. Producer Ian Brennan once again captures something unique here with the sixth in the series, this time the funeral music of Ghana. The Fra Fra quartet is captured in seven celebratory chant-like songs, recorded for the most part in procession and in all cases outdoors, a little like the funereal marching bands of New Orleans, but with comparatively more austere instrumentation.
Magical and at times otherworldly, Our Bright Night is an album to lose oneself in. Having virtually invented his own idiosyncratic style of playing, the tsapiky guitarist Damily has produced some of the most infectious sounds from Madagascar since the early s, with just six selections featured here, originally released on cassette. Bongo Joe Records continue to search out and reveal music from around the world that results in a great deal of satisfaction.
Early Years: Madagascar Cassette Archives is no exception. Good Times Older really does evoke the feel of Penguin Eggs, Sweet Wivelsfield and A Handful of Earth , which is both refreshingly nostalgic as well as being bang up to date contemporary at the same time. Getting the musical chemistry right when forming a group is always a challenge.
However, it is a trick that The Magpies have achieved with some aplomb. It started when singer songwriter Bella Gaffney began jamming with mandolin and banjo player Polly Bolton after a show in York back in It was the spark that got them together as a performing duo before expanding into a four-piece, The Magpies. More than making up the numbers, they were joined by Sarah Smout on cello following her work with Michael Chapman and Bridget St John and completed by Holly Brandon on fiddle.
After some successful live appearances at the likes of Glastonbury, Cambridge Folk Festival and Shambala, they have unveiled their debut album, Tidings. The album has ten tracks and takes three from the folk tradition, includes two covers and five compositions from band members. A mix that hints at the richness of variety to be found on the record. When it comes to their own compositions Gafney and Bolton come up with two apiece and one from Brandon.
The key to this debut is twofold. Firstly, Tidings offers plenty of variety and, secondly, the excellent blending of both their playing and singing is evidence that The Magpies have got the musical chemistry right. A record worthy of investigation and an act to watch out for when live music gets back to normality.
Access Denied is a veritable assault on the senses, a blended miasma of rap, punk, dub reggae and rock, loaded with samples and scratchy beats, yet an album with something to say. All very contemporary and noisy, yet engaging in places. The fourteenth studio album in a career that spans just over forty years. These twelve songs show a determination to be her own boss and the first rule of being a good boss is good delegation and for this album Lucinda surrounds herself with Buick 6, her regular touring band, each of the musicians evidently on fire.
That voice though, a mixture of late night barroom slur and late morning hungover drawl, Williams could sound like a parody of herself if her songs were not as good as they so obviously are. The second full-length album by the curiously named Devon duo India Electric Co. Despite the brightness and glow of the songs on The Gap , the duo have managed to wrap the disc in a sleeve that even makes a rainbow look dull. Not sure what the thinking was here, but the music compensates more than satisfactorily.
It was probably felt that in the case of Ireland, the wealth of music was diverse enough to have a set of tunes for itself, with some pretty outstanding playing from Liz Carroll on fiddle and Jenn Butterworth on guitar. A Day Will Come , its title borrowed from a Victor Hugo speech of , is both uplifting and thought-provoking, whilst maintaining a sense of optimism throughout.
Glasgow-based singer, guitarist and bouzouki player Luc McNally releases his delightful debut album, which consists of eight songs and tunes, some traditional, one or two self-penned while the others are borrowed from such notable sources as Mark Oliver Everett and Randy Newman.
With most successful solo albums, having the assistance of a small collective of collaborators is not essential but good when you can get it and here McNally is joined by Graham Rorie on fiddle and mandolin who also produces , Charlie Stewart on double bass, Stephen Henderson on drums and percussion, with further contributions courtesy of Innes Watson and Rufus Huggan on fiddle and cello respectively. A fine debut.
Using his own success and how to deal with it as a starting point, Isbell takes a deep look into his own troubled past, his relationships and memories of childhood, in an almost cathartic, self probing manner. Having already made their mark on the acoustic music roots scene, both through their solo work and as part of other outfits, not least Nickel Creek, along with Chris Thile, siblings Sara and Sean Watkins return with an exceptionally raw and vibrant album; a showcase of their shared musicianship.
As a duo, both musicians shine equally in their own specific field, Sara being an expressive fiddle player and Sean being an intuitive guitar player and both seasoned singers, possibly from birth. If their debut album as a duo consisted of covers, then Brother Sister explores their own writing capabilities with fine results.
If we wax lyrical about the playing, then the vocal prowess of the siblings is even more extraordinary. It might be said of Keep on Running that it benefits enormously from the musical embellishments that appear throughout, not least the guitar, dobro and pedal steel courtesy of producer Steve Dawson, whose informed playing brings an extra sparkle to the eleven songs that make up this debut album.
Cale-styled growl, underpinning each of the self-penned selections with rewarding results. Edwards delivers each song in a similar manner, a little like Sean Taylor, never preachy, rarely in your face, seldom flag waving, but persuasive nonetheless. This is gentle blues for the most part, tender balladry for the rest, and a good listen throughout.
Sean Taylor is an institution, an acoustic folk blues musician with a little street snarl. He sees the good in people while telling it straight and manages to avoid ever being a drippy acoustic hippy. Fiercely independent, Sean has released pretty much an album a year since on his own label, honing his considerable guitar skills and a characterful voice across an amazing catalogue. With 19 years of playing bars, clubs, concert halls, festivals, cathedrals, arenas and house concerts, Taylor is the seasoned troubadour.
Not slick, but at home and alive in front of an audience. The Green Note, Camden, is an old school establishment, high on ambiance and atmosphere and on a rainy night in October both the venue and Sean Taylor delivered a classic set. The song, at a faster tempo than the version on Love Against Death , is stripped of some of its blissed fog, but tells the story of an addict from their perspective. The guitar skips and echoes classic pickers like John Martyn and Isaac Guillory, understated but assured.
Seasoned Blues troubadour Taylor, with twenty years of hat n guitar travels, drops in some venue references. Gil Scott Heron, stops, looks down and nods along. Sean uses space, making the strum and slap of his instrument and his righteous blues vocal sound like a band with a couple of guitars and a reggae bass player. Live in October , the song is paired back to lyrical poetry, angry guitar and that riffing chorus, when an admission of failure becomes just noise. Taylor the folk minstrel and career musician cuts his cloth accordingly, a huge album track involves into a tight and stunning performance.
Van Morrison would kill to have this much soul. This is the sound of a singer, musician and troubadour at the height of his powers, consistently delivering material that sits comfortably alongside the classics with a contemporary edge and relevance. There might be several contributing factors as to why Pharis and Jason Romero make such good music together.
Could it be their telepathic communication skills, both as singers and as musicians or maybe just their choice of instruments and material? Could it have have something to do with their very specific location, namely their banjo shop just outside Horsefly, British Colombia, which appears to be a conducive place to write and make music as well as flogging banjos. The songs on this, their latest album release, Bet On Love , is a combination of all these factors.
Completely self-penned, each of the eleven songs are delivered through informed playing and empathetic harmonies, captured with instinctive sensitivity by producer Marc Jenkins. A really lovely album. The Radio Ballads might have been considered concept projects when they were first aired back in the late s and Northern Shores and Stories comes closer to the latter. The piano accordion can be an expressive instrument in its own right when in the correct hands and can span a broad canvas in terms of musical arrangement, away from its familiar use as an accompanying instrument.
The physical object itself is represented with one or two squeaks and clatters, which makes the music seem all the more tangible and raw. Mostly self-penned, with one or two melodies adapted from traditional Estonian bagpipe tunes, the pieces are all played solo, each rich in atmosphere and each tenderly performed.
If music is made to take the listener somewhere else, somewhere enchanting and ethereal, then the forests of Southern Estonia are as good a place to start as any. As a timely follow up to s Give and Receive , Shine maintains a certain vitality and promise for the duo, but I still think the best is yet to come. The two discs contain a generous 22 songs, one or two familiar, but mostly new. With one full length album and a couple of EPs already under her belt, Lizzy Hardingham returns with a themed EP, consisting of songs specifically relating to the sea.
Named for both the number of seas and the number of selections on the EP, Seven takes us on a journey across oceans, from the Arctic down to the Antarctic, through the Atlantic and Pacific, north and south both, and not forgetting the Indian Ocean. With half of the proceeds from sales of the EP going to the RNLA, Seven serves as a timely reminder of the wonder and admiration we hold for the sea, as well as the tempestuous relationship we continue to have with it. The Lockerbie-born multi-instrumentalist and composer places his inventive whistles and Pipes very much in the mix, not so much as lead instruments, but as part of the whole, giving the fine array of musicians around him plenty of space to breathe and to express themselves.
The album has an ensemble feel, with contributions by an array of top notch guest musicians, including Innes White on guitar, Laura-Beth MacCrimmon on Mandolin and Mohsen Amini on Concertina, amongst others. I think this is what we love about him on this side of the pond and I dare say, this is likewise what they think about him over there.
Existing Teddy fans will no doubt love this album, whilst newcomers will be equally impressed. He also fills in the larger context expertly, tracing the social and cultural dynamics of globalization in France. Highly recommended. Book Title : Paris Africain. Book Subtitle : Rhythms of the African Diaspora.
