Ashley Hutchings - From Psychedelia to Sonnets Album Review
The folk forefather’s music-and-words presentation, committed to disc.
The 50 year-plus peregrinations of Ashley Hutchings, the landlord of modern British folk music, have now delivered him to a particularly sweet spot.
It’s the one in which he’s on stage flanked by the able talents of vocalist-instrumentalists Ruth Angell and Becky Mills, for a recent series of music and monologue. In it, he plays music from his matchless career, interspersed with readings of lyrics, poems and sleeve notes from the recently revised volume Words, Words, Words.
