Peter McVeigh – We Don’t Believe You

Folk and Tumble

We are all “Brenda from Bristol”. As soon as the echoes of another election came whispering through we all thought the same. You’re joking? Not another one. Oh for God’s sake. I can’t stand this. There’s too much politics going on at the moment. Why does she need to do it? She proclaimed. Whilst we […]

Brigid O’Neil – Don’t Make Me Go To Town

Folk and Tumble

‘Don’t Make Me Go To Town’ is the latest release from County Down singer/songwriter Brigid O’Neill and follows on from last year’s successful EP ‘Arrivals and Departures’. Soulful clarinet and hypnotic percussion lead us into a slow moody jazz tune filled with double bass and drifting guitar that allows Brigid’s vocal to rise high above […]

Folk and Tumble

The Sandrunners – Speakeasy Polka

Folk and Tumble

‘Speakeasy Polka’ is the latest single from The Sandrunners and it is simply a creation of solemn beauty. The song spins a film noire type tale as it delves into shady bars full of “dancing girls with low cut tops” full of “wicked and cruel women” trying to catch the eye the angst ridden anti hero who for […]

Meb Jon Sol – Leave All Your Troubles With Me

Folk and Tumble

‘Leave All Your troubles with Me’ may not, on first listen, have the instant swaying, sing-a-long and seafaring credentials of Meb Jon Sol’s jaunty ‘Captain of this Ship’, but just apply the listen-three-times rule and what initially seems a rueful and sombre tune soon hooks you in. Betrayed at first by apparent simplicity, it skilfully […]
