Description

BBC Radio 2 Folk Musician of 2010 returns with a new thematic collection celebrating the Victorian Farming Year in Song.

John Kirkpatrick was the featured musician in the recent acclaimed BBC TV series 'The Victorian Farm'. His latest album is a powerful collection celebrating the Victorian Farming Year in Song. As John notes in his modest sleevenotes:
"Songs about farmers, and songs sung by farmers; songs about the work on the farm, and songs to make that work easier; songs celebrating particular days in the country calendar, and songs celebrating the daily miracle of life, death, and renewal. And the world we are shown here is not a romantic pastoral idyll viewed through rose-tinted spectacles ? this is a world full of sweat and muck, a world with dirt under the finger nails, a world full of snorting, and grunting, and heaving."
