GREG RUSSELL & CIARAN ALGAR
THE SILENT MAJORITY
FECD275
The duo of Greg Russell & Ciaran Algar is one of the most significant success stories of the UK Folk scene in recent years. From their debut album (THE QUEEN’S LOVER) in 2012 to winning the BBC young Folk Award within months, winning the BBC Horizon Award (2014), a second acclaimed CD (THE CALL) followed by stunning DVD and now their third CD. The juxtaposition of Greg's powerful vocals and Ciaran's superb fiddle playing coupled with their relaxed stage presentation is the key to their success. They are also talented on assorted other instruments which they have used more on this new album revealing a new depth to their music. They have more guest musicians on this new album and this gives them a bigger sound. Their stature grows with each project, but despite the additions it remains very much a duo album.

PETE MORTON with FULL HOUSE
GAME OF LIFE
FECD271
The two CDs of new material from Pete Morton - THE FRAPPIN' & RAMBLIN' PETE MORTON (FECD261) and LAND OF TIME (FECD269) - has refocussed attention on Pete's back catalogue of songs. Most of his earlier albums are either deleted or not easy to obtain and at gigs Pete often gets requests for a lot of his popular songs. Rather than trying to put together a compilation we decided to re-record some of his most popular songs. He is joined on the album by Full House, one of the most popular bands in the North-West of England and old mates who are very familiar with Pete's songs.

CIARAN ALGAR
THE FINAL WALTZ
FECD270
THIS ALBUM IS NOT ON GENERAL RELEASE UNTIL JANUARY 2016 BUT IS AVAILABLE HERE. Ciaran is a multi-instrumentalist (Fiddle, Guitar, Banjo, and Percussion) who is quickly becoming one of the most highly-regarded young musicians on the Folk circuit today. His playing has been described by fRoots as “engagingly empathetic and honest with a lovely tone” whilst Living Tradition magazine said he “exudes a life experience of a skill finely-honed from a myriad music sessions in a million bars”. Ciaran’s musical influences come from deep within the Irish tradition. This Irish connection led to Ciaran taking part in the Fleadhs run by Comhaltas, in which he was extremely successful. Over 8 years of competing, he won 20 regional titles, 12 British titles and 1 All Ireland title across various categories (Fiddle, Fiddle Slow Airs, Bodhran) all by the time he was 16 years old! Ciaran is best known for his work with Gre Russell (two albums and a DVD on Fellside, but this is his first album under his own name. The Final Waltz is influenced by many different artists over many different genres of music, which produces a fairly unique style. Three of the four songs on the album are self-penned. The main vocalist in the band is up and coming singer, Sam Kelly, runner up in Britain’s Got Talent and now a serious Folk musician. The majority of the album, however, is instrumental. Rather than recording every tune set with fiddle and guitar and producing a really traditional-sounding album, Ciaran has created a band for the album and for touring.

This new album is more along the same lines: more folk rapping, insightful ballads and beautiful love songs.

JIMMY ALDRIDGE & SID 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.
