Steam Age Records steam005-2

You get four men and six concertinas for the price of three here; explanation given in the informative notes to their second CD. It includes nine songs as well as some original, imported and Morris tunes, while the intro. to The White Hare of Howden is worthy of the Animals (I always said it was a Geordie song) and the Pressed Men’s version has a deliberately bluesy feel, including alto sax. An immediate contrast is Lavenders Blue (are we having an Owen Brannigan revival?), but well done lads, for the concertina and with many more words than appear in the Northumbrian Minstrelsy.
