CWR of Folk Kernow

reviews Parallel Strands by Martin Graebe & Shan Cowan

This is a deep venture that repays attention. Martins own songs so reflect the country life that the dividing line between them and songs collected by Baring?Gould is blurred. Result: a fascinating collection, roughly 50/50 of the 16 tracks being of each derivation. With another voice, female, and a small band of musicians, this is rich fare indeed. Track 15, the St. Issey
carol Rouse Rouse, is nothing short of magnificent.
