Three master folk musicians, Martin Simpson, Andy Cutting and Nancy Kerr, come together to record an album of compelling songs. The vitality of their live performances (nominated for best live act, 2015 Spiral Earth awards) shines through on a record that displays intuitive, joyful playing. A stunning mix of traditional and original material; a masterful version of 'The Plains of Waterloo', sits naturally alongside original songs like 'Dark Honey', Nancy Kerr's musings on how bees adapt to live in a world of humans, and Martin's 'Dark Swift and Bright Swallow' his recollection of seeing his first swallow of the year on Slapton Sands, the site of a World War II tragedy some 70 years before.
