Evergreen EP - LAU vs Karine Polwart

by Karine Polwart & LAU

In cart Not available Out of stock

5 studio tracks featuring Karine with one of her favourite all-time bands (and good pals) LAU.

LAU are Orcadian Kris Drever (vocals and guitar), fellow Pathhead resident Martin Green (accordion and keyboards) and Seal Islander Aidan O’Rourke (fiddle). Recorded at the beautiful Heriot Toun Studio in The Scottish Borders, the opening and title track of “Evergreen” was composed in situ by all four musicians and is a wee bit of an experiment for all of them! There are versions of two modern folk classics in Dave Goulder’s “January Man” and Lal Waterson’s “Midnight Feast”, a reworking of a 1980s Scottish pop cult classic in The Blue Nile’s “Rags to Riches” and a a gorgeous plaintive closer in “Lord Yester”, from the repertoire of Scottish folk legends The Corries.

There are lots of existing musical links between Karine and the lads. Karine is a guest vocalist on LAU’s album “Arc Light” and appears also on Kris’s album “Mark the Hard Earth”. And there’s a jig on the trio’s cracking first album “Lightweights and Gentlemen” written for Karine’s wedding! Both Aidan and Martin in turn have graced Karine’s albums too: Aidan on “Faultlines” and Martin on “Scribbled in Chalk”.

Darwin Song Project

by Various Artists

In cart Not available Out of stock

Unique songwriting collaboration and performance between eight of the most celebrated folk artists from the UK and the US; Chris Wood, Karine Polwart, Emily Smith, Jez Lowe, Mark Erelli, Krista Detor, Stu Hanna and Rachael McShane.

In March 2009 eight artists gathered together in rural Shropshire for a week long songwriting retreat to create new works that have a 'resonance and relevance' to Darwin, who was born in Shrewsbury in 1809. The eight artists cover a wide range of songwriting experience and styles, from the experience of Chris Wood and Jez Lowe, through to the youth of Rachael McShane and Stu Hanna. Bringing in two celebrated American singer/songwriters in Mark Erelli and Krista Detor, alongside Karine Polwart and Emily Smith who have both previously being involved in similar collaborative events, gave the perfect artistic balance for the project.

The CD captures 17 of the songs performed on the night, and features all 8 artists in both lead and supporting roles, culminating in Woods' ensemble piece. The songs cover all aspects of Darwin's life and legacy, and as you'd expect from the pedigree of artists involved, the quality of the songs and performances is exceptional. The live CD captures the magic of these songs on their first public performance. Many of the songs are already finding their way in the Darwin artists' individual live repertoire.

The Darwin Song Project has already been the subject of a dedicated BBC Radio 4 documentary and was featured on Mike Harding's BBC Radio 2 show with interviews and songs.
