Customer Reviews


I first heard Roots and the band in my car on radio 2 and had to find out more. As a Devon lad who knows nothing of folk I was surrprised to feel the hairs on my neck rise. The whole album is fantastic, the playing is second to none within any music genre and the lyrics seem to be brought from a distant past. Thought provoking and very English. This is a must if you want to touch your roots and be entertained. Just try to keep your feet still I know I can't! Would love to hear them live.

Roots is more than just another folk song

Roots is one of their most commercial songs and deserves wide airplay. Overall, a strong album. Some songs hit you immediately, Roots, Falmouth Packet, for example. Others grow on you with repeated listening - Undertow, the Dive, All I'd Ever Lost. Isn't that what a good album should do? "If I needed someone" is from the Folk on 2 tribute to Rubber Soul. Listen to the music and then try to see them live. They attract an appreciative audience and generate a lovely atmosphere in anywhere from a village hall to the Royal Albert Hall (3rd date is Spring 2007!!)

Saw them at the Shrewsbury Folk Festival
