WGS411CD 'Maid on the Shore' - Niamh Boadle  Track List

Niamh Boadle Young up and coming singer at home with both traditional and modern folk music. Growing up on Lancashire’s Fylde Coast, though with an Irish father, Niamh has been immersed in both English folk music and the Irish song, music and dance tradition from an early age. A multi-instrumentalist with a lilting voice, she has represented Britain at the All-Ireland Fleadh many times and was also a YFA finalist at the age of fifteen. It was, therefore, a natural progression to study on the Folk and Traditional Music degree course in Newcastle. This has expanded her musical horizons even further, and helped her to explore her role in the Irish diaspora through study at the Irish World Academy of Music & Dance in Limerick.

WGS406CD 'Just Another Day' - Tom & Barbara Brown Track List

A combination of circumstances has unintentionally brought us to Minehead, in Somerset, Cecil Sharp collected a number of songs from two retired sea captains in the town during a series of visits between August 1904 and May 1909. Cpt. Lewis (1835-1915) gave him 26 songs, Cpt. Vickery (1842-1916) gave him 13,  Together they give a fascinating window into the local vernacular song repertoire at the beginning of the 20th Century. The selection on this CD includes just some of our favourites: seven from Robert Lewis and five from James Vickery.

WGS358CD 'Beyond the Quay' - Tom & Barbara Brown Track List

 A wide range of songs - long, short and tall all with a touch of the briny about them - but not a shanty in sight.

We've also, again, taken the opportunity to work with some additional performers we admire: Keith Kendrick makes a welcome return he hasn't been able to make any of our recordings since Where Umber Flows and it's been a delight to work with the Askew sisters, Emily and Hazel.

WGS420CD 'I am the Song' - Jim Causley  Track List

 In 2013 I made an album of a selection of Charles Causley poems which I had set to music to commemorate the tenth anniversary of his death. Last year the Charles Causley Trust commissioned me to create another project using Charles poems to help celebrate the centenary of his birth, this year in 2017. I also felt

that I wanted to look at a different aspect of Charles’ work this time around and so as his ‘Collected Poems for Children’ has recently been republished I thought it would be great fun to focus on those poems. And great fun it has been too!

WGS418CD 'Cyprus Well' - Jim Causley  Track List

This album is a collection of Charles Causley poems set to music and sung by me – Jim Causley. I first began setting these wonderful poems to music about seven years ago. I had grown up having them read to me and I have a distant memory of a primary school teacher holding a book in front of me and explaining that I had the same name as its author. I didn’t have any difficulty choosing which ones to set; they jumped out at me quite readily and the tunes flowed swiftly and with ease.

WGS377CD 'Dumnonia' - Jim Causley Track List

The album will include accompaniments from members of The Dartmoor Pixie Band, Nick Wyke and Becki Driscoll as well as Jeff Gillett. The kingdom of Dumnonia was the ancient home of the Dumnonii, the Celtic tribal people who lived in this part of the South West peninsula before, during and after the period when the Romans popped by to visit for a chilly winter holiday. It is where the modern county of Devon derives its name and a large chunk of its cultural identity. This album is an expression of Devonshireness as I feel it; with people who were around me at the time, no border checkpoints, nobody pushed out, just what it is.

FLED 3043 'The Duck Race' - John Kirkpatrick  Track List

A great new solo album from Mr Kirkpatrick – what more can we say. This time out he explores the Morris Dance tunes of Shropshire – tunes from the repertoire of the Shropshire Bedlams and Martha Rhoden’s Tuppenny Dish, the two dance sides he helped form in the mid-1970s. Spectacular virtuoso playing – it’s easy see why John is regarded as a world class squezebox player. All this plus some incredibly informative and amusing sleevenotes from John.

There style is typified by driving fiddles and harmonica, fat brass, persistent and inventive percussion, all glued together with rhythmic and sweet piano. Whether applied to a newly

And the same confidence is evident also in George's singing the best he has ever been. “Regrets” is probably

the finest example of his mature and seasoned delivery. Augmented sparsely but tellingly by Vicki Swan and Jonny Dyer (in the guise of George's itinerant Los Marbles) both in voice and on an assortment of guitars, bass, flute, small-pipes, whistle, keyboards and accordion settings
