Very excited to announce the addition of a new band member this year: the very talented Ben Cox on vocals, whistles, flute and harmonium! We have lots of new tunes as well as songs that Ben has brought along - both original and traditional songs from the English/Irish/Scottish tradition. Expect uptempo reels and jigs, heart-wrenching ballads and songs, 4 part harmony and a lot of different instruments on stage!
“The Careful Placement of Stones is probably the best jazz-folk album that you will hear this year.”
“Inspiring virtuosity rooted in Celtic traditions...an outstanding instrumental album...features timelessly crafted whistle and fiddle tunes masterfully performed by some of the finest musicians in London's contemporary folk scene.”
— World Music Central
“Modern sounding and atmospheric...sublime...there is no better allegory (placing stones) for this highly recommended release merging so many elements of different traditions in such an elegant and smooth way.”
— Bright Young Folk
“This debut album of jazz-folk fusion marries traditional instruments such as whistles, banjos and jaw harps to proggy progressions and meandering melodies with great effect.”
— 'The Musician' Magazine
— The Living Tradition
