Folk singer songwriter psychedelia makes a welcome return in the form of Dodson and Fogg and Fogg, a new project led by songwriter Chris Wade. The influences of the early pioneers of 70s folk-rock is apparent and the new album tries to counterbalance this theme with a modern, atmospheric approach. Chris certainly has his work cut out providing vocals, guitars, keyboards and percussion parts (will be interesting to see him do all this playing live!). Joining Chris for moral support are heavyweights Nick Turner on flute from Hawkwind fame, Celia Humphries on vocals from trees and Judy Dyble on vocals from the original line-up of Fairport Convention. Completing the set are: Alice White on Violin, Ellie Davies on Cello and Kzrysztof Juzskiewicz (of Skin Alley) on Accordion. Check out the video below and if you like what you see then you can get your hands on a copy of the album via the web link below.
Incidentally, Chris Wade is also a writer who worked with comedian Rik Mayall on the audio-book “cutie and the sofaguard“… is there no end to the man’s talents! folkmaster
