Elizabethan Session


180g gatefold vinyl with printed inner sleeve. Martin Simpson, Nancy Kerr, Folk by the Oak patron Jim Moray, 2014 BBC Folk Singer Of The Year Bella Hardy, John Smith, Hannah James, Rachel Newton and early music specialist Emily Askew have come together to create new music that has a resonance and relevance to the era of the Elizabethan times. This Gatefold Vinyl showcases the results and features the cream of the contemporary folk world. After a week-long residency, songs were premiered at live shows at Hatfield House, childhood home of Queen Elizabeth, and Cecil Sharp. The group also appeared at the Folk by the Oak festival that takes place in the field featuring the very oak tree where legend claims the young Princess Elizabeth learnt of her ascent to the throne. Produced by Andy Bell (The Full English), the album was recorded at the Old Palace at Hatfield House in the very hall where Queen Elizabeth held her first Council of State and at Cecil Sharp House, home of EFDSS.
