Savourna Stevenson, June Tabor & Danny Thompson – Singing The Storm

A very quick post today as I’m “off to London to visit the Queen” – well, daughter to be strictly accurate.

This week’s music featuring Danny Thompson comes from the album he made with Savourna Stevenson (Scottish harp or clàrsach) and June Tabor (vocals). I don’t remember the album receiving much acclaim when it was released but I loved it from the day I bought it. I think that I’m a bit of a closet harp fan. On this CD I particularly like the rhythmic playing of the harp – and I for one do not usually associate rhythm with the harp.

The track I’ve chosen to post is an instrumental thus does not feature June Tabor. It does however have some lovely playing from Savourna Stephenson and sympathetic accompaniment from Danny Thompson.

Note to self: must investigate more Savourna Stephenson albums / harp music.
