From Here: English Folk Field Recordings

Jack being recorded in our kitchen.

A few months back Nic & Ian from Stick in the Wheel journeyed over to our little terrace house in Bedford to record Jack singing and playing in our kitchen. They’ve been going around the country doing folk field recordings: Capturing the folk performer raw at home in just a take or two with no studio frills or pesky overdubs! The result is From Here: English Folk Field Recordings – a set of immediate and intimate recordings by contemporary folk singers doing traditional songs that mean something to them, due to be released on 17th March 2017. It features folk establishment figures like Jon Boden, Lisa Knapp, Martin and Eliza Carthy, and one of our very own- Mr Jack Sharp singing Bedfordshire May Carol (track 1!). Well done guys on a fabulous album. We love it x
