Well it isn’t quite six months since my last update! But I’m very excited to tell everyone that Celandine’s debut album “She’s Like The Swallow” was released on Friday 21st August at our performance on the Soapbox stage at FolkEast. Here’s the official press release:
‘She’s Like The Swallow’ is the debut album from Celandine, the Suffolk based folk music duo consisting of Carys and Rosemary (and an unnamed guitar) who perform their own music and arrangements of traditional folk songs and covers.
The choice of songs on the album is both varied and clever. From the re-working of classic originals like ‘The Sounds of Silence’ to mash-ups of traditional songs like ‘Horseback/Fair’ and beautiful self penned tracks like ‘One Single Raindrop’, Celandine have an impressively deft touch that is both involving and rewarding.
‘She’s Like The Swallow’ is an uncluttered, ‘up close and personal’ folk music album that beautifully showcases the emotion and magical harmonies of this classically trained duo and is sure to find favour with a wider folk audience.
Fans who have seen Celandine live on the Suffolk folk music scene will be delighted with the music on offer here. New listeners will be easily and quickly captivated by their unique sound and style.
