About this item

Cath & Phil Tyler play Anglo-American folk music using guitar, banjo, voice and fiddle. Cath was a member of the band Cordelia's Dad when she lived in Masschusetts, USA, in the 1990s. Phil, from Newcastle upon Tyne, has played in various folk, rock and ceilidh bands for many years. Coming together musically through a shard love of traditional narrative song, Sacred Harp singing and sparse mountain banjo, they have performed on stages as diverse as the Royal Opera House in London, and Morden Tower on the old city walls of Newcastle. "The Ox And the Ax" is Cath and Phil's third album and their first in over eight years. It was produced and digitally mastered by Phil Beg at ICMuS, Newcastle upon Tyne, and mastered for vinyl by Peter Fletcher at Black Bay Studios, Outer Hebrides.


Matt says: Another top drawer folk offering from our good friends at Thread. Cath & Phil conjure up a fiery blend of trad influences with wonderfully evocative vocal interplay. This is my jam!
