GREG RUSSELL & CIARAN ALGAR – THE SILENT MAJORITY
Artist: GREG RUSSELL & CIARAN ALGAR
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.
