Blackthorn were an obscure Irish electric folk band who produced 2 albums in 1977 and 1979. This is their second offering and was engineered by Dave peg (Fairport Convention) at his studios in Cropredy. It is a fabulous album of mainly traditional folk songs with an electric twist – the classic track being ‘Coal hole cavalry’ with some eccentric keyboards framing a great traditional song.

Nina Szifris, the band's lead singer is truly a gem and is still playing regularly today. The band are really talented musicians throughout the band and album. A must for the fans of Fairport Convention, Caedmon, Pentangle and Mellow Candle.
