New on sale! Nick Hart
Following on from his first two solo albums, ‘Nick Hart Sings Eight English Folk Songs’ (2017) and ‘Nick Hart Sings Nine English Folk Songs’ (2019) his latest album is released in April this year ahead of his UK tour.
‘Nick Hart Sings Ten English Folk Songs’ is in many ways a departure from the stripped back, live approach of Nick’s first two albums. Deprived of a sound engineer and locked away in a house full of strange instruments, he was afforded the time and space to explore different approaches to the accompaniment of traditional song. Nick’s distinctive guitar playing is augmented here by harmonium, lyre, viols and a host of percussion and woodwinds, and while some tracks were recorded completely live, others such as May Song and Dives and Lazarus have been given a more multi-layered treatment. At the heart of it though, Nick has approached the songs on this album with the care and sensitivity for which he has become known, allowing the them the space they need, while bringing to the fore the nuances in mode and meter that make these songs so special.
Having witnessed Nick’s stunning live performance back at Manchester Folk Festival in 2019, we can’t wait to hear him perform songs from the new album this June.
