GREG RUSSELL & CIARAN ALGAR
THE QUEEN'S LOVER
FECD251
****WINNERS OF THE 2012 BBC YOUNG FOLK AWARD**** *****WINNERS OF THE HORIZON AWARD IN THE BBC RADIO 2 FOLK AWARDS 2013***** “Greg Russell plays and sings with a maturity and emotion that belies his tender years. It is so rare to find new performers who have the confidence to play with this delicacy of touch and yet to sing in such a heartfelt way. He will, I think, go far”. These comments by BBC Radio 2’s Mark Radcliffe give a very accurate summary of 19 year old Greg. The power and conviction in his delivery is compelling and his teaming up with someone so formidably talented as 16 year old Ciaran bodes well for the future. They combine to provide an accomplished stage presence and come across as likeable performers which translated into the studio setting. Ciaran Algar is a member of the Young Folk Award semi finalist band Tri. Together they draw on a range of influences to create exciting music both with energy and also with delicate feeling when tackling, traditional material, songs by accomplished songwriters as well as their own songs and tunes.

GREN BARTLEY
SONGS TO SCYTHE BACK THE OVERGROWN
FECD247
Gifted singer songwriter Gren Bartley carved himself a name in a duo with former BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards nominee Tom Kitching (see FECDs 202 & 222), with Maverick magazine describing them as “an excellent twinning of two outstanding rising talents.” Gren Bartley is now striking out solo (Tom is now a member of Pilgrims's Way - FECD239), tapping into his rich and prolific song writing reserves and effortlessly bridging the Atlantic divide with an acoustic spectrum ranging from English folk to moody American blues. The 13-track album is a significant showcase for his sensitive and sometimes quirky song writing. The genre-hopping album demonstrates Bartley’s strong, maturing voice alongside his acclaimed acoustic finger-picking guitar. With clear, driving rhythms and poetic lyrics it shapes a myriad musical landscape of people and places and opens a fresh chapter in Bartley’s career.

MARTIN CARTHY & DAVE SWARBRICK
WALNUT CREEK
FECD243
Two icons of the English Folk Revival, Martin Carthy and Dave Swarbrick have had a huge influence individually, as a duo or as individual members of the seminal Folk Rock bands, Steeleye Span and Fairport Convention. In between they have notched up memorable contributions to an array of different groups and projects. Perhaps, though, they will be most remembered for their duo formed in the 1960s, resurrected in 1989 and which has been an on-going occasional outing ever since. What is remarkable is their intuitive almost telepathic connection on stage. This creates a tension and excitement for the audience and really comes to the fore in a ‘live’ setting. This set of ‘live’ performances garnered from various concerts on three continents from 1989 to 1996 perfectly illustrates this. This year sees them celebrating their 70th birthdays.

Their trademark vibrant sound and soaring harmonies are well to the fore on this set of new songs and given that they've got "two of the best male singers around" (Properganda) what more could you ask for?
