Following the success of the BBC Radio 2 award winning The Full English, Fay Hield moves forward as a leading proponent of traditional songs as she prepares to release a new album, “Old Adam”.
This fresh and original exploration of how we use songs, stories and music to understand what it means to be human combines vision, inspiration, dedication and outstanding musicianship to make this an evening of tender poignancy. Her longstanding band, The Hurricane Party, expands to include members of the Full English, bringing new arrangements to old songs including fiddle, melodeon, concertina, guitars, percussion and bass. At times sparse and contemplative, at times with a festival stomp, the music is captivating and engaging with plenty of choruses and vibrant interaction with the audience.
