Description

A truly landmark recording even by June Tabor's own high standards. June June Tabor's recording career has consistently reached ever higher standards of performance and interpretation. Each of her albums has sought to match the highest technical standards with emotionally powerful performances and scintillating musical arrangements. Her forthcoming album a collection of songs concerning humankind's relationship with the sea is already being hailed by critics and long-time fans as another career highpoint. 'Ashore' features a powerful set of contemporary songs alongside classic traditional ballads like 'The Bleacher Lassie Of Kelvinhaugh' and 'The Great Selkie Of Sule Skerry'. The contemporary material includes a spine-tingling version of Elvis Costello's 'Shipbuilding'; a new recording of Ian Telfer's 'Finisterre' (first recorded by June with the Oyster Band on 'Freedom & Rain') and two remarkable songs from the pen of Cyril Tawney 'The Grey Funnel Line' and 'The Oggie Man'. The album was recorded with June's regular musicians - Andy Cutting, diatonic accordion; Mark Emerson, viola and violin, Tim Harries, double bass and Huw Warren, piano.
