Tunes for a Monday Morning

Today's tunes are...

Above: "Willow Tree" from Unkle Vanya, a terrific new alt-folk band from central Scotland. The video, according to the band, was shot in a mystery wood in deepest Renfrewshire.

Below: "Otmoor Forever," performed by members of Andy Letcher's wonderful band, Telling the Bees -- an Oxford-based group playing "darkly crafted folk."  (I highly recommend the band's two CDs.) The song is based on a true story from the 1800s.

Telling the Bees


Brilliant, I will have to listen to more of Unkle Vanya because I love the Willow Tree. Thank you, Terri. How I wish I would've had the energy or whatever it takes to learn how to play the fiddle, sweetest of sounds.

Wow, love both bands, but especially the Oxfordshire historical song by Telling the Bees. What a great song. xxxx
