New Road To Alston


Traditional - Tunes and Songs - Concertina and Cello. Dave Townsend's formidable technique and unique style in playing traditional and classical music on English Concertina together with Gill Redmond's amazing versatility and inventiveness on cello make this a stunning album. Dave and Gill have been performing together for some years now, and this is their first album as a duo. At the core of their repertoire are forgotten treasures from English tradition performed with verve, passion and originality. Their fiery improvisations carry English music into new realms, with excursions to Scandinavia, America and Wales.
