Editorial Reviews

Orfeo features 11 superbly arranged traditional songs, including lead track, Sir Orfeo, based on a 13th Century retelling of the epic supernatural Greek fable, Orpheus and Eurydice. Fay's gift for unearthing rare and interesting material is well represented throughout, including the obscure but beguiling nursery rhyme Naughty Baby and the feisty Lancashire mill-girl tour-de-force The Old 'Arris Mill. An Anne Briggs inspired version of The Cuckoo is included. The focus of the first album was Fay's rich and unadorned voice. While Orfeo finds her once again exploring lesser known traditional songs, this time, the new recordings also see Fay confidently fronting a stellar supporting cast; The Hurricane Party. Consisting of some of the finest folk musicians working today The Hurricane Party features; Andy Cutting (button accordions, melodeon), Rob Harbron (English Concertina, fiddle, vocals), Sam Sweeney (fiddle, viola, cello, nyckelharpa, vocals) and Jon Boden (fiddle, guitar, percussion, double bass, mandolin, additional banjo and vocals) plus special guest Martin Simpson (banjo, guitar).
