Spiers & Boden - Fallow Ground (CD)
Described by the Guardian as ‘the finest instrumental duo on the traditional scene’, this album bursts with charm and originality.
The songs and tunes selected for 'Fallow Ground' are overwhelmingly traditional a clever mix of rambunctious melodies and contemplative ballads and are the classic Spiers & Boden mixture of morris tunes, pieces brought back to the 21 st century from dusty manuscripts and, of course, a rare ability to conjure their own remarkable tunes.
