'In an exclusive Late Junction session, English folk songs are explored by the exquisite young folk singer Stephanie Hladowski and experimental finger-picking guitarist C Joynes...'
'Terrific album of traditional English folksong - 11 pieces specially sourced from the archive at Cecil Sharp House, to be precise - interpreted by singer Stephanie Hladowski and multi-instrumentalist C Joynes. Whether you're a fully switched-on folk beard or a relatively inexperienced adventurer in Electric Eden, this is a fascinating journey through the landscape, magick and jerry-built mythology of our fair island - try listening to a tune like 'Lord Bateman', driven by Joynes' by turns courtly, ornate and droning, raga-like guitar, and tell us it doesn't speak to something ancient in you and the world around you. 'Flash Company' is a stunning acapella that highlights Hladowski's pristine, characterful vocal talent, but the guitar treatments - at once jazzy, bluesy, medievalist, Arabesque, betraying the influence of John Renbourn, Davey Graham and Bert Jansch - cast every bit as strong a spell, perhaps even stronger. A superb and timeless record, one that we can see ourselves listening to again and again, recommended to fans not only of the aforementioned but also Current 93, Pentangle, Shirley Collins, Fairport Convention and Andrew King.'
