Parallel Strands by Martin Graebe & Shan Cowan

Summary

This album brings together two aspects of Martin Graebe:- his ability to write great songs in traditional styles and his skill and patience in researching the songs from the C19th collection of Baring-Gould. Many of the songs are recorded here for the first time since Baring-Gould noted them down and all the arrangements of Martins own songs are new.

Shan Cowan - vocals
Paul Burgess - Fiddle
Jeff Gillett - Guitar and Mandola
Keith Kendrick - English and Anglo Concertina
Barry Lister - Tuba and Trombone
Paul Sartin - Oboe
