Folds in the Field
Wendy's latest solo album pays homage to the landscapes, people, culture and history of South West Scotland. Its five tracks include two longer pieces, one reflecting her home valley of Glencairn and the other a composition on the life and ideas of James Clerk Maxwell. The title Folds in the Field hints at both Galloway`slandscape and Maxwell`s electromagnetic theories.
Joining Wendy`s harp, electroharp, concertina and vocal are Ruth Morris on nyckelharp, Gavin Marwick on fiddle, Stuart Macpherson on bass, singer Alex Kapranos and poet Tom Pow.
An album of many layers and a few surprises!
