Whistling Treason

“Coarse but powerful” – Kaptin Barrett, Head of Music, Boomtown Fair

Dubplate-folk, Soundsystem-Trad, Acoustic,Valve Powered, Global Confusion. Valve powered English folk music. The anarchic side of traditional music. Politics, hostility, rites & riots, drinking, sex, death & travelling life too.

What started out as a strictly folk project has expanded wildly, to incorporate tunes from around the world, original compositions, and a whole lot of dub

I’ve returned to my love of traditional song, drawing on a lifetime spent travelling the secret world of the waterways, green lanes & old byways of England. With tenor guitar and banjo accompaniment, this is fireside folk done right.
