Video Wall 5

We just realised that the backlog of videos has built up again – it must be something to do with the summer weather bringing them out of hiding – so here is Video Wall 5.

We begin with Davey Dodds, formerly of Red Jasper, live at The Fleece in Bristol with ‘Kick Of Your Shoes’ from his new album Kernowcopia. This song features Martin Solomon on fiddle, Keven Taylor on harmonica and Bradders Bluesinger on bodhran.

DARLING WEST are Norwegian but you wouldn’t know that from listening to their brand of Americana/Folk. ‘After My Time’ is one of their newest songs.

Our friends MERRY HELL have a new EP out next week. The title track is ‘Come On, England!’ taken from their album, Bloodlines, as is the second track, ‘We Need Each Other Now’. Also on the disc are a preview of the forthcoming live album and a live track from the full band recorded in Clitheroe. The official video is still under wraps but here’s a live cut to be going on with.

We rather like Anglo/Welsh trio THE TRIALS OF CATO. Here’s a live performance of ‘Matthew Van Dyke’ from their debut EP.

This is the title track from the debut album from Chicago-based bluegrass-old-timey quartet, BIG SADIE. It’s called ‘Keep Me Waiting’.

Not quite so subtle are JO CARLEY AND THE OLD DRY SKULLS. ‘Dance ‘Til You’re Dead’ is from their new album, Them Old Bones.
