BBC Radio 2 has announced it’s folk awards. Some of the names have been covered on here before but some are new to me. In particular I was struck by the tradional sounds of Kris Drever. His debut record came out on Reveal-Records and was produced by John McCusker and featured friends Eddi Reader, Kate Rusby, and Roddy Woomble.
“Farewell To Fuineray” is a great song and amazingly is the hidden track on his debut cd Black Water. The English folk crowd are loving this record and apparently he’s a joy to behold live. (RIYL early Richard Thompson)
