Our first CD, Northern Cross is available from Bandcamp for £10.00 including postage and packing (within the UK). Digital downloads are also available from Bandcamp and other retailers including CDBaby, iTunes and Amazon.
The CD comprises 14 instrumental tracks, which are representative of our repertoire. The tunes come from three continents and four centuries, ranging from 17th Century Playford to modern tunes written by our own Steve Hodgskiss, Simon Heywood, and even a forró from Brazil.
Reels, jigs, polkas, hornpipes and waltzes are all represented and are sure to set your feet tapping. And if you’d like to get up a set, the tracks are all arranged at appropriate lengths and speeds for dancing to.
We’ve been in Talking Cat Studios this year working on our second album, which we hope will appear in 2017. Watch this space…..
Reviews for “Northern Cross”
Some very splendid tunes
— Johnny Adams ‘Rolling Round the Ryburn’ Phoenix FM
They produce an overall sound which very clearly retains its English roots, but at the same time is fresh, gutsy and attention-grabbing.
— Living Tradition
A very entertaining CD; it has the variety to make it a real pleasure to listen to. Well worth adding to your collection
Grabs you by the ears in no uncertain way… a glorious sound.
The tracks are beautifully contrasted throughout. Different rhythms, different instrumentation – there is so much variety in this CD that you won’t get tired of playing it
— English Dance & Song magazine
Digital downloads and CDs are available from Bandcamp. The album can also be streamed free of charge.
