Cunning Folk - Ritual Land, Uncommon Ground album review

Album Review

Low-key acid folk from South East London scholar.

In a previous life, George Nigel Hoyle was bassist in Britpop also-rans Gay Dad, though his commercial peak came in 2005, when Lee Ryan (formerly of boy band Blue) took one of his songs, Army Of Lovers, into the top three. Since then, he’s become far more of an attractive proposition, steeping himself in folk tradition and its attendant history, recording albums as Nigel Of Bermondsey and GentleFolk.
