reviews Songs from the Derbyshire Coast by Keith Kendrick

****


Keith Kendrick has built a real reputation in traditional folk circles, with a background of performing stretching back 40 years. The delightfully titled Songs From the Derbyshire Coast (his third for Wild Goose) reveals his love of maritime songs and the nautical theme looms large here. From an exceptional reading of 'Lowlands Of Holland', the full bodied 'Beulah Land', a gutsy 'The Echoin' Horn' and some fine tune sets, most notably 'Roman Reel/Polka Chinoise', Songs from the Derbyshire Coast is a thoroughly rewarding collection.
