Adventurous work from stellar vocalist/Dadgad guitarist, with a depth and texture of soundscape. 3 songs inspired Arthur Ransome's classic Swallows and Amazons series of children's books. The title track uses the arresting image of two children lost in a moorland fog; in "The Tide", a mud-bound sailboat becomes a portrait of a marriage, while "Where The Wind Decides To Blow" performs a similar transfiguration on a homemade sailing sled sent hurtling across a frozen lake by a blizzard. Includes setting of the "Canticle Of The Sun/All Creatures Of Our God And King" and Ewan MacColl's "First Time Ever I Saw Your Face". •"An original fusion of jazz and folk... that sounds like the journey of a vintage bourbon through a long winter night.
