The road goes ever on - and takes unexpected turns on the way. Our magical combo has evolved a new form with the arrival of Rhys Wilson on songs, guitar, voice, and terrible jokes; and now we've broken all the rules and let in an infectious new variant in David Cammish on rock-steady bass. It works, and the songs keep coming. We'll find the sounds that tell their stories. Please join us.

‘Very good… Granny Mean is stunning. Quietly finger-picked, violin in the background, a rising chorus, and lyrics which capture the many emotions of someone with dementia… It works. It shouldn’t but it really does. Let the Fire Die Back…. is driven by violin and the interplay between male and female vocal. You pick up the story in the gaps between the images – and you want to join in that refrain. Difficult Man is a delightfully human song. The Chittagong Tattoo is a powerful title track. And Leavings has… lovely interplay between the instruments as they hand the lead briefly from one to the other and a final verse that brings light to darkness… It feels like you might want to see if you can get them to your folk club…’ (folking.com)
