Folk Bands and Artists
I have been singing and playing English Traditional Song nationally for 15 years, first with the duo Barron Brady and now as a solo performer. As a self-taught guitarist I try to keep the accompaniment out of the way of the words and melody, it’s the songs that matter. I am a folk fanatic- this is exciting, moving and relevant music, hallowed by time- the only kind of music that never gets old. I celebrate that and hope I demonstrate my love for this powerful music every time I sing.
I think he’s a really, really fine guitarist and an even finer interpreter of traditional and contemporary folk songs. His new album is called ‘Sweet Billy Caution’. I think it’s a lovely album, he’s got a crystal clear voice and a simple but powerful accompaniment on the album; great choice of songs too, end of story. [The Sailor Cut Down, album song is:] ...totally and utterly beautiful.
