VARIOUS ARTISTS ¿ Morris On The Road/Great Grandson Of Morri
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 09/02/2008 10:41:51
In 1972 Ashley Hutchings unleashed Morris On on an unsuspecting audience whose introduction to the folk-world had generally been via Celtic influences such as folk-rock stalwarts Steeleye Span and Fairport Convention. Since then of course we have come to know and love the quirky nature of these very British dance tunes. The near legendary line-ups of the Morris On 'band' over the years have now comfortably settled with the trio of Hutchings on bass, Simon Care (melodeon) and Ken Nicol (guitars) with 2005 seeing the release of Morris On The Road and Great Grandson Of Morris On. These particular albums re-visit many past glories including "Shepherd's Hey", "Nutting Girl" and "Princess Royal" so you would imagine by now that most of the 'good' traditional Morris tunes had just about run their course. Not so I'm pleased to report as various Morris styles including Abbots Bromley Horn Dance and the Minehead Hobby Horse swell the ranks of the more established Bampton and Bledington traditions. According to the sleevenotes of The Mother Of All Morris this could be Ashley's swan-song for the band and, indeed if this is the case then he has left the English 'folk' scene with one of the most colourful and lasting portraits of our traditional heritage. With a legacy that hopefully will continue for many years to come, accompanying tracks by artists the calibre of the Sultans Of Sqeeze, The Gloworms and Jim Moray and contemporary tune additions from Chris Leslie and Ric Sanders amongst others these recording are all must have purchases for any self-respecting follower of 'folk'.
