Andy Cutting and Nancy Kerr have been as enthusiastic about working with Martin Simpson as he clearly has about working with them. Their busy diaries were able to accommodate a successful tour in September 2014 and, at the beginning of 2015, the recording of this album. Splendid reworkings of traditional songs, including a masterful version of ‘broken-token’ ballad ‘The Plains of Waterloo’, sit beautifully alongside original songs like ‘Dark Honey’, Nancy Kerr’s musings on how bees adapt to live in a world of humans, and Martin’s ‘Dark Swift and Bright Swallow’ his recollection of seeing the first swallow of the year on Slapton Sands, the site of a World War II tragedy some 70 years before. Recorded with award-winning producer Andy Bell, these are songs that communicate to the listener a sense of bonded musicianship, a real feeling and empathy for each others' playing and a collective love and innate understanding of the music.
