Good news, everyone. They absolutely do make ‘em like they used to.
Let us introduce you to Gary Stewart, making his entrance into the world of music with a crash and a howl and a fiery folkish burr. Ellen and the Escapades fans should already be in on the secret of Yorkshire’s treasure of a Scotsman; he lent his dulcet tones to the harmonies of their highly acclaimed album ‘All The Crooked Scenes’ and he’s been thumping the bass up and down the country, touring that same record.
Now he’s releasing his own labour of love, the ‘Year And A Day‘ EP. Sparking off British and American folk traditions alike, you’d be hard pressed to pin any of this breathtaking music to a specific time or place. Like all the greatest folk songs, they shoot for timelessness and split the arrow right through the bullseye.
