Well what a treat - rwo fantastic new folk albums. Excellent stuff!

"More conventional folk-minds might look askance at our approach, but as Zappa said 'Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible.' Not that we do this intentionally of course, it just turns out that way naturally, given our inspirations, roots & natural inclinations.   One of our recent promoters insisted our approach was a little too weird for his particular norm,"

Yes, well, step outside the stockade of folk revival conventions and into the forests and badlands of alternative interpretations and you're an outlaw. To be honest, that's where I'm most comfotable and that's where, in my opinion, the music belongs. My own music has no legitimancy outside the small area that it represents and if it touches only a few people then it has been worthwhile.
