"Arthur McBride" by Filkin's Drift


"Arthur McBride" by Filkin's Drift

News

For those of you who have been deprived of hearing the music of Ellie Gowers (I was fortunate enough to catch a live set on February 29th, but that seems an age ago now), the good news is that she has been working with folk duo Filkin's Drift who are Seth Bye on fiddle, accordion & vocals and Chris Roberts on guitar & vocals.

Ellie features as part of a vastly expanded lineup for a track on their new & eponymous EP, namely a version of the traditional anti-recruitment song "Arthur McBride". The rest of ‘Filkin's Ensemble' playing on the song (it's a live recording too) are Harry Thorpe (guitars), Lottie Price (violin), Emily Dore (viola), Flora McNicoll  & Millicent B James (‘cellos), Daniel Newberry (tenor sax), Fraser Birchenall (baritone sax), Michelle Holloway (recorder), Katie Stevens (clarinet), Dan Cippico (bass) and Alexander Henshaw (percussion) .


Joseph Ockford was the sound engineer who captured what is a spectacularly affecting performance & one I thoroughly recommend
