reviews Cold Fen by Mary Humphreys & Anahata

As a lad I spent many hours sitting by drains (rivers to you) in the fens with a fishing rod. As the 20lb pike I dreamt of eluded me I had a lot of time to look across the starkly beautiful flatlands and absorb this unique landscape. Maybe you could have heard these tunes in alehouses around the fens in past centuries...

Mary and Anahata have an intense passion for unearthing material. They also have a good ear for invigorating arrangements and Mary is a great singer that imbues these songs and tunes with a vibrant energy
