Or perhaps un unthankyou (to torture a double negative.)
One of my highlights of Greenbelt festival was listening to The Unthanks– a totally surprising feast of gorgeous harmonies and instrumental arrangements.
And clog dancing.
I had heard the sisters Rachael and Becky sing before- and to be honest, despite being a lover of folk music- particularly of the northern British kind- I found it a bit too woolly-jumper-finger-in-the-ear. I could appreciate the history and the connection to something lost, but not quite be drawn in to the music.
I got round to ordering their recent album ‘last’-
This album combines lots of lovely things- wonderful songs, simple but sweet vocals, string quartet, guitar, piano- and the combination is beautiful.
