MDR of Sing Out

reviews Prevailing Winds by Tom & Barbara Brown

Lovers of English folk songs will welcome this second recording from the forty?year West County veterans. Traditional songs like Sir Francis Drake, The Farmer and His Wife, and The Bitter Withy, some in their distinctive Cornwall or Devon variants, are sung here in a straightforward energetic style. They accompany themselves on, concertina, guitar, and mandola; with some fine guesting on melodeon and fiddle.
