new Tabor cd coming.   
Quercus' first release on ECM

'Quercus' - a unique trio featuring Iain Ballamy with pianist Huw Warren and the award winning folk singer June Tabor. Quercus will release their debut recording on ECM records early next year.
Quercus features a beautiful and compelling collection of music including traditional folk songs and interpretations of works by English composers John Dowland and George Butterworth. There are also original pieces by Iain Ballamy including a setting of 'Come away death' by William Shakespeare.

June swept the board winning four prizes at the 2012 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. Awarded 'Folk Singer of the Year' for the second time in her career, she also shared the best group, best album and best traditional track awards with her collaborators The Oysterband. Check out her performance at the awards here.
