reviews Return Journey by Dave Arthur with Pete Cooper & Chris Moreton

For musicians and lovers of frailing banjo, guitar picking and fiddling, whether novice or expert in the field, this collection of ballads and tunes is a sheer delight. A thorough musical exploration, not only in music and song, but in the breadth and depth of the historical background provided. This is Dave Arthurs forte, and his enthusiasm for the material, and deft playing, is a pleasure to the ear.
Traditional Old Time American and English ballads played in the original style, with accompaniment by two of the UKs finest, Pete Cooper on fiddle and ace flat?picker Chris Moreton on guitar.
Weve heard some of these pieces played in live performance, now buy the__ album; not only for the music, but as an addition to the reference library for the next generation of players.
Difficult to name a favourite, but I Wish I had Someone to Love Me is a classic.
