  • Description

    Much anticipated debut album by folk singer Hannah Sanders, produced by Ben Savage (The Willows). The album showcases a stunning voice of unaffected beauty, with a range, elasticity and purity so rarely encountered in the modern folk landscape. Clearly a singer with a deep understanding of traditional song, Hannah seems equally adept at delivering love songs like "I Gave My Love a Cherry" with intimacy and simplicity as she is at telling a dark murder ballad like "Miles Weatherhill" with real intensity and drama. An English singer who spent much of her life in America, influence from either side of the ocean is clear from these arrangements, which breathe new life into a exquisite collection of folk songs. Hannah (vocals, dulcimer, guitar) is joined by Ben Savage on dobro and guitar, Jon Thorne (Lamb, John Smith, Martha Tilston) on double bass, Evan Carson (The Willows, Sam Kelly) on percussion, and Anna Scott on Cello. There are also guest appearances from Jade Rhiannon, and Hannah's sister Ruth Sanders on vocals.
