Description
Neo-folkie Sam Lee's second album superbly intertwines traditional and modern elements. A Mercury Prize nominee for his first release, the British baritone here fulfills his initial promise with an emotive set of songs learned from Gypsy travelers, an experience which Lee told NPR was like "a secret passport, leading him into an unknown world." Highlights include "Over Yonders Hill," "Moss House," "Bonny Bunch of Roses," "Lord Gregory" (hauntingly accompanied by a koto), and "Moorlough Maggie" (learned from "Old Maggie" Stewart, who "wore her hair plaited down to her ankles and sang wildly her visceral wandering tunes").

"Shaped with an expansive cast … these stunning rearrangements of traditional songs feature ravishing instrumentation, archive samples and incisive, spirit-awakening vocal performances."—The Mirror, London

"They are performed in no-nonsense, almost crooned style, but with startlingly original settings. So the opening 'Jonny O' the Brine' matches edgy, insistent percussion against wailing brass and ukulele effects, while 'Bonny Bunch of Roses' starts with an archive recording of an eastern European cantor mixed with flute, violin and percussion. The most emotional songs are bravely straightforward but quite unexpected: on 'Lovely Molly' he is backed by the exquisite massed voices of the Roundhouse Choir, while the poignant 'Moss House' features just the piano…. Surely one of the albums of the year."—The Guardian

"Like his predecessors from the 1960s ... Lee takes traditional folk songs and updates them in unexpected ways.... And even as he reshapes these folk songs into a 21st century form, Lee is still honoring the individuals and communities that have welcomed him in."—NPR
