The best of their career so far, at once an uplifting, engaging and darkly addictive experience. A bold concept piece for the times ahead.

A groundbreaking album to start the new decade in an old-time acoustic fashion 'The New Farming Scene' from Edinburgh's Southern Tenant Folk Union creates the first true crossover of the modern folk tradition with it's not-so-distantly related bluegrass sound. Creating a worthy successor to their first two albums, the highly acclaimed self-titled debut and it's progressive follow-up 'Revivals, Rituals & Union Songs', Southern Tenant Folk Union and their sublime bluegrass instrumentation manage to bolster and enrich the old-time and traditional Scottish folk melodies.

This new album is a perfect mix of the hybrid Americana that comprises bluegrass with the non-American accented Scottish folk voice and comes as a breath of fresh air to those tired of the ghettoisation of these once independently experimental genres. Comprising one traditional lyric (19th century bothy ballad lyric 'South Ythsie' set to new music) and ten original tunes, it signals a new chapter in both the folk and alt country musical styles.

'The New Farming Scene', is the best of their career so far and is at once an uplifting, engaging and darkly addictive experience. A document of the new location the band finds itself in and of the times ahead.
