By Kath Reade (2022) (CD)
‘Inheritance’ is Kath’s latest album and is a homage to beautiful traditional folk songs of the British Isles that move her, some of which date back to the 1400s. The history of these songs is deeply affecting and fascinating. Kath has included two originals written in the traditional style.
The songs were recorded in Whitby, a mecca for folk music lovers, by superb recording engineer and musician Rob van Sante.
Kath sings mainly acapella but there are great harmonies from Lynda Hardcastle and Alan Rose, whistle by Gordon Tyrall, haunting Uilleann pipes by Becky Taylor, and keyboards from Chris Parkinson.’
