Tony was devoted to finding old traditional folk songs and revitalising them. This album certainly does this, with songs collected in Somerset and Dorset, rescued by Tony from obscurity. ‘Young hunting’ was Tony’s first recording and is noticeable for the brave a cappella approach to most tracks. Where there is musical accompaniment, Tony plays concertina, with Robin Dransfield (fiddle) and Barry Dransfield (guitar), plus a chorus of the great and good of 1960/70’s English Folk music – Dave Calderhead, John Kirkpatrick, Kevin Sheils, June Tabor, The Young Tradition (Peter Bellamy, Royston Wood and Heather Wood).
This is a fabulous traditional folk album that will take you back to our folk roots, especially with Tony’s superb folk vocals. Highly recommended for lovers of folk music.
