Product Details

“The press coverage and folk club reports have been glowing and rightly so” R2 Magazine “Greg Russell plays and sings with a maturity and emotion that belies his tender years.” Mark Radcliffe BBC Radio 2 It’s been two years since the release of Greg Russell and Ciaran Algar’s previous, and debut, release – The Queen’s Lover (FECD251). A lot has happened in that time. In 2013 the duo won the Young Folk Award and a year later picked up the Horizon Award, both at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. Musically, the pair have continued to develop their sound, adding instruments and gaining an increased maturity and understanding of music whilst receiving great acclaim for their live performances. Despite all the change and development, however, Greg Russell and Ciaran Algar have taken the same fundamental approach to The Call as they did The Queen’s Lover. The duo has created an album which features music from a wide range of sources. Some traditional songs are included, songs from contemporary song writers also and indeed some original material, but underpinning it all is a desire to create an album which is true to their energetic and considered live performances. “Russell’s clear and natural vocal – underpinned by his sublime acoustic guitar work - is key…but the icing is Algar’s fiddle playing. Sometimes delicate, occasionally raucous: he adds imaginative sparkle” Acoustic Magazine "It was encouraging to see a number of young performers taking their place [in the large concerts] on merit. Greg Russell & Ciaran Algar [and James Findlay] were particularly impressive." Living Tradition (review of Cheltenham Festival)
