The Half Remarkable Question/Ride, Ride
We recorded these songs over two cold days in January at Euan's studio, Static TV in Greenwich. These are songs all have us have always loved, and we performed them a couple of years ago at Will Hodgkinson's folk night at the Betsey Trotwood, so it was great to get them recorded. We did it all pretty much live to tape, which gives the whole thing the natural spontaneity of when we first played them.
Anne Briggs is a hero of mine so it was slightly daunting to step into her shoes, so I hope this is a fitting homage to her brilliant music
