June Tabor is the most important English singer of folk and contemporary songwriting working in Britain today, a peerles interpreter of the modern and ancient. With "An Echo Of Hooves", June explores the rich tradition of the English and Scots ballad that forms the backbone of folk song and still inspires contemporary narrative song. In describing the abiding appeal of these songs, June says, "For me, the ballads of the English (and Scots) speaking peoples are story telling at it's stark, urgent best.
As you listen - for these are songs in which poetry and music are equally important - feel the wind and rain, see the hunter's moon rise and catch the echo of hooves on the night air." This is June Tabor at what she does best, guiding us to into an extraordinary landscape with timeless tales to tell. Beautifully recorded and sumptuously presented with a full colour 20 pages booket containing lyrics and notes on the songs, the album also features Martin Simpson and Kathryn Tickell among the backing musicians.
