Angeline Morrison is a vocalist, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and morris dancer based in Cornwall, who believes in the inherent beauty of sad songs. Angeline’s homespun sonic aesthetic, deeply emotive writing and layered vocal harmonies are all stitched together to make small, tender, often dark stories in song.
The UK’s historic Black presence is evidenced but not well known, and difficult to find in the UK’s existing body of folk songs. Angeline’s latest album “The Sorrow Songs: Folk Songs of Black British Experience” is the result of research into the historic Black population of these islands. It is a work of re-storying, of lives and of experiences, into songs in the folk style.
