Folk Fever – “going back to my roots”

The Band Of Love is a one-off collaboration between musician/producer Mark Tucker (Portishead, PJ Harvey, Jethro Tull) and a host of stars from the thriving UK Folk scene. His vision for the album Folk Fever was to create an album of disco classics in a folk idiom. As the preview on Amazon explains “the recordings on Folk Fever show them to be joined at the hip, moving in step and ready for action. The album features 13 tracks of folk disco magnificence and brings together exciting new artists and respected veterans including Mike McGoldrick, Phil Beer & Steve Knightley (Show Of Hands), Patsy Reid, Matt Downer and Rune Cygan Barslund alongside The Band Of Love members Jim Causley, Greg Russell, Hannah Martin, Philip Henry and Alice Jones”.
Encouraged by the boundless imagination of Musician entrepreneur Ian Brown, Folk Fever is to be released by Island Records on 30 March and features a sleeve designed by Stylorouge and illustrated by Ieuan Edwards.
