A Good Paddock

by The Hannafords

Craig and Auriol are a talented twosome who’ve developed their own contemporary folk/country sound since 2004 when they wrote their first song together. They first started playing and writing at the encouragement of friends, and have been working at their craft ever since. Craig’s unique guitar style has developed as he re learnt playing, following a significant hand injury and is now stretching the vocal chords with some tasty harmonies.. Auriol has been juggling singing with babies and work for as long as she can remember and has taken up the mandolin. Currently they have two CD’s, and the third is on its way. They have been finalists in the Roddy Read Songwriting Competition (Maldon folk Festival) in 2005 and 2007. In 2009 Auriol received a nomination in the Victorian National and Country awards (Whittlesea) for Victorian Female Vocalist and this year, 2011, The Hannafords were twice top 2 finalists in the Merv Lowry traditional country and in the Victorian group of the year sec

Album Notes
The Hannafords new CD release – “A Good Paddock”
Posted on March 20, 2013 by Country Crossroads

The Hannafords new CD release - A Good Paddock.

The Hannafords "A Good Paddock"

And what a good selection of work this is too.

Craig & Auriol Hannaford have proved that perseverance is one of the keys to making your music standout.

On this, their third release, I found an “organic” sense about “A Good Paddock”. I enjoyed listening to the use of guitar, banjo, violin and mandolin etc which gave it a true acoustic feel. In doing so, it complimented very well the types of stories being told in the songs.

Auriol, as the main singer, has a real sense of honesty in her voice. Having listened to previous work I believe her strengths lie in this style of music where she comes across vocally comfortable.

The title track – A Good Paddock, A Better Way, Have a Go and Cliff the Cabbie are my favs with good storytelling lyrics getting you in.

This duo work hard to get their message across and deserve credit as Indie artists. They are embracing all avenues available to them to get people listening to their story and it’s a good story to tell.
