Organ Morgan band photograph

The barrel piano comes to life and you’re immediately in a rural hostelry a 100 years ago, merrily drinking ale and listening to the music coming from the smartly dressed band on the tiny stage in the corner. The sound fights for attention through the smoke filled room and the noise of drunken revellers until …

Peggy Seeger - The Invisible Woman

‘Legend’ is a term often bandied about a little too loosely, but in the case of Peggy Seeger, it is a justified and well-earned description. Seeger has been a pivotal figure in the UK and US folk movements, in her own right, and with her late husband Ewan MacColl, and comes from a musical family …

You may have picked up on Benjamin Lazar Davis from his 2018 debut ‘Nothing Matters’, an impressively carefree collection of contemporary song-writing, rhythmic heartbeats and lush musical landscapes. Or maybe you latched onto the surging electronic soul pop of his earlier ‘Let it be You’ collaboration with Joan Wasser (Joan As A Policewoman). Or you …

Warm, natural, humorous, gentle, empathic ….all words that justifiably get bandied about in the scrabble to describe James Yorkston’s music. What is often overlooked is his calm navigation of different pathways around the songwriting landscape, quietly opening the gate onto something new. He’s worked with Kieran Hebden, Simon Raymonde, Rustin Man and Alexis Taylor over …
