All new songs by our favourite UK folkster — several of them war-time — full of fresh classicism and poetic brilliance. Great record, warm and gently rocking.
Alasdair is the real thing and this is vintage stuff, with bracing arrangements and affective vocal support from Emily Portman: Will without Law writhing across the floor, blood and gore streaming down the walls.
Ravishing settings of poet Robin Robertson’s tales and meditations about the remote Scottish archipelago of St. Kilda. AR in full flight. Deeply beautiful, highly recommended.
