Well Seasoned by Keith Kendrick

Summary

Songs and tunes which reflect the turning of the seasons and the passing of the ritual calendar. The album has songs for each of the major seasons plus songs from the Sheffield Christmas tradition, the new year, Easter, and Whitsuntide. This is his third solo recording and is a testament to his consummate ability to stand alone as a singer and one of the best concertina players in the country. His obvious grasp, clear insight, and love, of the musical genre is simply a joy to behold. Many of the songs are Derbyshire based and display the pride that Keith has in being a Derbyshire mon.. He has always harboured a love of the ecclesiastical sounds and textures of carols and hymns and this is apparent in his choice of material for this album.
