ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Weaving the Land (Love Songs to Wild Earth) may best be described as ‘ancient folk’ : gentle and pulsing songs that are influenced by English, Scottish and Irish music as well as melodies from the north of Siberia. Dartmoor musicians Carolyn Hillyer and Nigel Shaw have travelled to all these places and have woven a beautiful collection of love songs to the land. The album was created on many old and traditional instruments, including ten stringed instruments: piano, Celtic harp, violin, cello, guitar, salterio, bowed and plucked dulcimer, Hungarian gardon, Shetland lyre and hurdy-gurdy. Hand-carved wooden flutes, tin whistles, small pipes, skin drums and percussion (including herding bells, sled bells, reindeer toe and bone rattles) were also used to create the landscape of melodies on which these songs were laid.
