Rachel learned this traditional ballad from the singing of Chris Coe.
The Furrow Collective are Rachel Newton, Lucy Farrell, Emily Portman and Alasdair Roberts. This new collective brings together four of the finest, award winning musicians on the UK folk scene and delves into the obscure world of balladry at its darkest and quirkiest. Each singer airs lesser-known gems from their traditional repertoire with an eclectic backing of harp, guitar, viola, concertina, banjo, musical saw and bewitching harmonies. With a bold, improvisatory approach, their common focus is to capture the raw edges and fleeting magic of ballads, with storytelling taking centre stage.
Traditional Arranged by The Furrow Collective.
AT OUR NEXT MEETING WILL BE RELEASED ON 17TH FEBRUARY 2014
