The group consisted of a mix of early music and Scottish traditional musicians, and they were invited for a week's residence in Snape, home of composer Britten, to record a folk music album.
The musicians in this project are early music ensemble Concerto Caledonia, classically trained Olivia Chaney, and folk musicians Mairi Campbell (one of my favourite Scottish singers, of The Cast), Jim Morey, and Alasdair Roberts.
In the year 21 and on their sixth album Hoven Droven, which is slang for helter skelter, get off to a flying start - raw, powerful and boisterous.
It was certainly a worthwhile project, as the result is impressive."You show me the door, and I fall on my knees/because I don't want to leave," he sings, in the aftermath of another fight, a jarring and real description of that horrible feeling.Sometimes the lines are simply really good, the kind where you have to sit back and smile; "Don't waste your wishes and nickles on broken-down wells," he advises on Know The Darkness.Pedro Blom on the bass guitar and Björn Höglund on drums are the gutsy rhythm section. Listen to "Slyng" or "Fridas" and agree with me or be silent forever!They haven't retired (still some original members are onboard this unsinkable ship) and there is no tiresome moment on their recent album "Appelation d'Origine Contrôlée" (after a seven year abstinence from the studio).
