  • Description

    The hottest act on the UK folk scene follow-up to their acclaimed, best selling previous album. Handsome digipak packaging which has become a hallmark of their releases. This is Spiers & Boden's follow up to their highly acclaimed, best selling album BELLOW (FECD175). As part of their drive to establish English traditional music and demonstrate that it can be every bit as energised as the Celtic variety, this CD is devoted entirely to tunes. Spiers & Boden have won the 'Horizon' and 'Best Duo' awards at the BBC Folk Awards and their big band, Bellowhead, won 'Best Live Act' this year. They are part of Eliza Carthy's band, The Ratcatchers, and are currently the hottest act on the English folk scene. This is just the duo, no guests, playing with the energy, the drive and the flair with which they have built their reputation. "They tackle everything with such natural zest and vibrancy it sounds refreshingly contemporary and original." - Mojo
