about

Our friendship is older than our adulthood; we were teenagers when we met.We’ve played on each-other’s records; hung out on tour; argued, advised and commiserated about books and politics – but never made music as a two.

We started searching out trad songs for an imagined folk duo, for an imagined gap in our schedules. We went so far as to dig around at Cecil Sharp House and pay daft money for an 1860s ballad collection in a Buxton antique shop. Quietly the idea pickled.

Then in Autumn 2013 for two months we travelled together on a tour bus, up and down the backbone of Britain, playing cards, running into service stations for chocolate at 4am while everyone slept. There we found something tangible to hang it on – a thread running through that meant we could grab songs from anywhere; not just an arbitrary folk repertoire.

The following Spring, one night we sat in Digger Barnes’ beautiful Hamburg apartment drinking his Venezuelan rum and it all fitted - we just had to get it on tape.

So we present WALK AWAY, WALK AWAY. Other people’s songs, old and new. Loyalty and loss. People coming apart. Wild spaces. Loneliness versus solitude.A long drive alone through a thunderstorm. And today’s nomadic life – hi tech, yet old fashioned.

We hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we loved making it.
Chris & Gill, London, January 2015
