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.

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”.

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.
