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).

HUGHIE JONES
A MARITIME MISCELLANY
FECD258
Hughie Jones, formerly of the now legendary folk group, The Spinners, returns with his fourth CD for Fellside. Hailing from Liverpool it is only natural that songs about the sea would take a major role in his repertoire and Hughie regularly sings at Maritime festivals both here and in the USA. This new collection has songs written by Hughie, songs from other songwriters, reworkings of old themes sitting alongside old favourites. Joining Hughie is "the fifth" Spinner, John McCormick as well as American musician Bob Conroy, Brian Peters, Dave Russell, Linda Adams and Dan Jones.

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.

GREN BARTLEY
WINTER FIRES
FECD256
Following hard on the footsteps of his previous album - FECD247 ("A quiet triumph" fRoots magazine) - Gren takes another leap forward employing his renowned guitar skills, poetic lyrics and subtly powerful voice with this stunning collection of new songs. "As an acoustic finger picking guitar and banjo player he has few if any equals in his age group; as a rooted-in-folk songwriter he's developed an alarmingly good canon of work" R2 magazine.

JOE TILSTON
EMBERS
FECD255
After years on the Punk scene as a member of Random Hand, Joe (son of Steve Tilston and Maggie Boyle) makes his debut as a songwriter and solo performer. This album represents the culmination of 6 years of writing and reflects his influences from growing up in a musical family whilst adding to them his own fresh twist and energy provided by his recent musical experiences. The resulting songs question our humanity and also celebrate it. With help from a few friends to enhance, but not dominate, the arrangements this emerges as a debut album with considerable class.

HADRIAN'S UNION
IN YOUR OWN TIME
FECD254
Stew Simpson has spent the last 10 years developing his art as a songwriter. He saw fiddle player Danny Hart play a Showcase spot at Bramton Live and that resulted in the birth of a duo. For recordings and the occasional 'live' gig they are joined by fretless bassist, Mike France. The songs are ‘contemporary folk songs’ about the world we live in today based on traditional subjects like politics, love, work and observations of people. They are not quasi traditional songs, but songs written in a distinctive style which lifts them above countless other songs which attempt to follow a similar path. ‘The Crack’ magazine noted “the pair weave many a tale and put plenty of passion behind it too, making for an utterly compelling listen”.

PETER BELLAMY
THE BARRACK ROOM BALLADS OF RUDYARD KIPLING
FECD253
A DOUBLE CD FOR THE PRICE OF ONE. Peter Bellamy made a name for himself setting Rudyard Kipling's poems to music and turning them into rather fine songs. Most of Peter's settings have appeared on CD now, but his classic collection of the Barrack Room ballads has never been reissued in its entirety.
