  • Description

    One of the most distinctive voices in British folk, Peter Bellamy is joined by The Watersons, Dave Swarbrick & Louis Killen on what is his best recording.

    As a member of the powerful acappella group, The Young Tradition, Peter Bellamy was one of the most active artists working to reawaken interest in the traditional songs of England. He was passionate about music, from the great English traditional singers, to the prisoners of Parchman Farm and the Rolling Stones and beyond.

    Both Sides Then – his finest solo album is a superb integration of his varied musical interests, drawing on English, Irish and Appalachian traditions.
    Working with close friends from The Young Tradition, The Watersons, Louis Killen and Dave Swarbrick, Bellamy explores the richness of traditional music. Peter Bellamy, who sadly died in 1991, left a remarkable body of recording which continues to inspire musicians around the world.

    Topic Records are proud to reissue these important recordings from their archive as part of the label's 70th anniversary celebrations.
