JIMMY ALDRIDGE & SIDE GOLDSMITH
LET THE WIND BLOW HIGH OR LOW
FECD266
A debut album by two artists Jimmy Aldridge and Sid Goldsmith who play traditional and original folksongs of the British Isles held together with driving banjo and guitar arrangements and close vocal harmonies.Their music reflects the diversity of voices within the folk and acoustic world. They weave traditional English folksong with Irish, Scottish and American tunes, and their own compositions draw on many different styles. The stories are varied but there is a common thread of political struggle and resistance, and the decline of the industries that were the backbone of England for many generations. Jimmy and Sid both work towards environmental protection, Sid in traditional forestry and Jimmy as an environmental campaigner, and the political elements of these pursuits inform much of their music.The album is very much rooted in traditional music but it is not bound by it and it delivers a fresh interpretation of some well travelled tunes and songs which manage to bridge between the tradition and modern times.

EWAN McLENNAN
STORIES STILL UNTOLD
FECD263
BBC Horizon Award winner, Ewan McLennan returns with his third album. With each album Ewan builds on the previous one and this latest one is sheer class. The Scottish newspaper The Herald summed up Ewan's approach to his material as "a dynamic dialogue between tradition and modernity with artistry, finesse and eloquence. All those ingredients are here: traditional songs alongside his own compositions; familiar songs reworked; lesser known traditional songs; all backed up by his beautifully accomplished, tasteful guitar playing and his voice described by Mojo magazine as " gorgeous...so moving". A beautiful, quality album on so many levels.

GREG RUSSELL & CIARAN ALGAR
THE CALL
FECD262
“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)

PETE MORTON
THE FRAPPIN' AND RAMBLIN' PETE MORTON
FECD261
‘THE FRAPPIN’ AND RAMBLIN’ PETE MORTON' is a new collection of songs, ballads and folk raps that could only have come from the pen of Pete Morton. Wandering through the centuries and back with both eyes on the present, he delivers ten spellbinding lyrical gems on this superb new album. ‘Frapping’ his way around the tradition with a mix of rap, talkin' blues and folk club chorus he rants social comment at knitting machine speed, before returning to his tried and tested skill at the beautiful ballad. There are anthems here too, this really is a folk singing ‘tour de force’, this CD has all the hallmarks of a classic. "Not only impressive but a revelation......totally original.” The Guardian

A. L. LLOYD
TURTLE DOVE - ENGLAND & HER TRADITIONAL SONGS Vol.2
FECD260
The latest in our collections of recordings by A L Lloyd. This set is loosely based on the theme of 'love songs'. Accompanied on some tracks by Alf Edwards, Bert Lloyd’s straightforward presentation, coupled with his ability to tell a story, remains a focal point in getting into this interesting set of songs, is an object lesson for aspiring singers and reinforces why he was such an influential figure of the English Folk revival.

SARA GREY
DOWN IN OLD DOLORES
FECD259
"Any new record from the unforgettable Sara Grey is a cause for celebration" claimed fRoots magazine whilst R2 magazine described her as "one of the finest exponents of American Old Time music". The highly respected Sing Out magazine expanded on this saying Sara has "a vast repertoire and a deep understanding of the songs she sings". Of her last CD (Sandy Boys FECD225) Maverick magazine felt it was "a must for anyone who adores quality and brilliant music". This new CD follows in the footsteps of its predecessor with a varied and rich collection of songs ranging from the brooding Lonesome Roving Wolves to the ebullient Rocky Island all performed in Sara's inimitable style accompanied as before tastefully by Kieron Means (guitar, vocals) and Ben Paley (fiddle).

JAMES FINDLAY, BELLA HARDY, BRIAN PETERS, LUCY WARD
THE LIBERTY TO CHOOSE - A SELECTION OF SONGS FROM THE NEW PENGUIN BOOK OF ENGLISH FOLK SONGS
FECD257
The Penguin Book Of English folk songs (pub.1959) compiled by Ralph Vaughan Williams and A. L. Lloyd became the folk singer's 'bible'. Fellside released two CDs of songs from the book, FECD47(Linda Adams,Martin Carthy, JezLowe, Roy Harris and John Bowden) and FECD173 (A.L.Lloyd) so it seemed appropriate that when Penguin issued a new collection we should release a CD as well. Under the musical direction of the respected musician and singer, Brian Peters we have assembled three award winning singers who are at the forefront of the current folk scene. The result is a varied selection of songs given a variety of settings from full ensemble to solo.
