I asked Jonathan Hagger (AKA Mad Priest) – who is very knowledgable about folk music – to give me some recommendations for this series. He pointed me in the direction of Rachel Newton.
I don’t know anything about these tunes Rachel is playing (are they traditional or her own compositions?), but I do know the music sounds stunning.
If you want to find out more about Rachel, her website is here. She also has a MySpace page (I’m surprised they still exist!) where you can hear three more of her tunes. Me, when I get a bit of pocket money I’m buying the album.
