Bed Breaker (trad.)/Four Bare Legs Together (trad.)/Hannah May's (James Fagan). There's many a rude song in the traditions of the British isles, but less so tune titles. Deb learnt Bed Breaker as a teenager at various sessions in Hertfordshire - it has a third part which is well worth looking up. Four Bare Legs Together is from the Second Boldwood Dancing Master book, and Hannah May's is a fabulous tune by James Fagan.

Kinnaris Quintet alternates wonderfully between sweet warmth and rapturous joy. They accomplish what all good folk music aims at. It's very difficult to make an instrumental album of this length not start to all sound the same, but every track on Free One is so well constructed as to be chapters of a moving story, finally deeply satisfied by the conclusion of the title track. By jolts and false starts it alludes to brokenness without drowning in it. It's full of a realism that sees the ugliness of the real world and yet chooses joy, and this to me is what it truly means to be free. gripraven
