Description

It's 45 years since Liege & Lief almost single-handedly created the genre folk-rock. Since then, that simple marriage of traditional music and electric instruments had been suborned and sidetracked, dissected and documented, Oystered, Albioned and Steeleyed.

Punningly recalling the assault of the new which Fairport Convention's 1969 LP represented, TradArrr have reimagined folk rock, painting from a much larger palette, introducing the tints, tones and textures of a whole panoply of musical genres. As you'd expect, here are the precision percussion, searingly tasteful guitars, melodic basses and fiery fiddles that one associates with the genre. But in addition, one finds brass in truly British styles the dazzling brightness of Purcell, the oomph of Elgar, the emotive richness of a Yorkshire brass band soloist - but also hints of jazz, trad and modern, and even the occasional mariachi riff), string sections, and countless astute references to a long legacy of pop and rock in its many forms.

After the success of their first album, Cautionary Tales, work has nearly finished on the band's second album, TradArrr's second studio album ''Further Tales of Love, Death & Treachery' develops (mostly English) traditional songs and, with expanded rock band instrumentation (slide guitar, strings, brass, organ, drums, six voices), creates a sumptuous and exciting listening experience - gutsy male & female vocals, strong rhythmic feel and instrumental brilliance - that redefines the genre for 21st Century ears.
