The Unthanks with Brighouse & Rastrick Brass Band

Diversions Vol. 2

I'd heard bits of The Unthanks on 6Music over the years and when looking through their albums this one caught my eye. It was recorded at different venues in Salford, Bristol, Leeds, and Derby.

The songs are beautifully sung and beautifully played by this great pairing of folk and brass traditions. Occasionally you hear music that nudges something within your soul that you can't pin down. This is a great album. The first song 'The King of Rome' about a racing pigeon is beyond description in how moving it is. I've actually cried more than once when I've played it in the car. The Unthanks are great singers with pure and haunting voices. They remind me very much of Linda Thompson, albeit with a Geordie accent. Amazing stuff.

Ace, just back from Green Man and they were on the Main stage in the afternoon sunshine of Saturday. Had a string Quartet behind them and were stunning. A bit of clog dancing thrown in as well. Also i stood behind them as they were watching Sam Lee on the Walled Garden stage later on. Wish i'd've read this before sheeps, i'd've passed on your approval.

It would have quite a thrill for them, pity.

Could easily have put this in the Earworms. Its beautifull.
