JOSIENNE CLARKE & BEN WALKER "The Seas Are Deep" (2012)

Where do I begin to as least convince you to listen to this album? Do you like Folk music? Do you like Irish music? This is all you need to know to press play. The purity of Josienne's voice, the subtle and beautiful instrumental arrangements by Ben Walker at the mandolin and guitar. Josienne playing the recorder on some of the songs. A special mention to the great addition of the cello played by Jo Silverston. No wonder why they won the 2012 Isambard Folk Award! A pure delight. After your first try; you might buy!

My favorite tracks in order:
  • Lily Of The West
  • Hares on the Mountain
  • John Riley
  • My Donal
