Freedom And Rain remains one of the finest collaborative albums of the past three decades. Bringing together the immense, individual talents of the sublime English folk singer June Tabor and the raucous roots rebels Oysterband, it produced something quite new and enduring. When they reunited last year to perform at fRoots Magazine's 30th birthday party at The Roundhouse, they felt the chemistry spark again. And 21 years on, they've made the brand new Ragged Kingdom, a brilliant, belated follow-up that mixes the traditional with the contemporary in startling fashion.
