Cunning Folk - Constant Companion FLAC album

Constant Companion was Folk Radio UK’s Album Of The Month: for December 2018 It is rare for an album of predominantly traditional material to sound fresh and inspired all the way through. It is even less common for such an album to feel both thrillingly contemporary and utterly timeless. With Constant Companion Hoyle somehow managed it. As Cunning Folk, he is making some of the finest acoustic music to come out of this country in years.

Given a Wizz Jones-like jazzy folk arrangement, ‘Dear Joan’ is a familiar club staple about a young woman getting the best of would-be seducer, with further fingerpicked guitar intricacies to be found on ‘Bruton Town’, Hoyle’s version somewhere between those of Pentangle and Davy Graham. Unquestionably, the best known of the traditional numbers is ‘Matty Groves’, Hoyle’s favourite track of Fairport’s Liege & Lief, a seminal influence on his folk upbringing. Somewhat shorter, Morris tune ‘Constant Billy’ clocks in at just 49 seconds. He gets bluesier on ‘The Astrologer’, sometimes known as ‘The Bold Astrologer’, a little recorded number (though Heather and Royston Wood sang it on their 1977 No Relation album) about a fortune teller with an eye for his female clients, although his claim of ‘The Cruel Mother’, an infanticide ballad given a suitably stark reading, being equally rarely played isn’t borne out.
