The Lonesome Lake EP is out now! It’s available as a digital EP from iTunes, Bandcamp and Amazon, and at the time of writing there are only 14 left of the 100 uniquely hand-designed CDs too. Here’s a video for lead track, Condor – as heard on 6 music this week thanks to Gid Coe and Steve Lamacq. The vid was made by our very own Neil Piper (not just a great drummer eh?), and was filmed at Padley Gorge in the Peak District.
A million pounds to the first person to correctly guess what’s in the basket (not really, just in case. I’ll tell you another time).
The EP was produced by that lovely fella with the clever ears, Dave Sanderson, and features the talents of: Katherine Jackson (fiddle, uke, vocals), Hannah Cartledge (flute, vocals), Oliver Allchin (banjo, saw), Chris Loftus (bass), Neil Piper (drums), plus the wonderful bunch of people known as Cornerstone Brass on Condor, led by Damian Wileman (who made a real arrangement out of my vague ideas). And me of course on vocals, guitar and piano.
The EP emerged from our Roving Women project and the photo of Lonesome Lake is from Andrea Kannes’ film “We Lived Alone: The Connie Converse documentary”, which we’ll be screening again at the Lexington in London next month, as well as performing our versions of Connie’s songs and the songs from the EP.
You can read the lyrics over here.
We all really hope you enjoy it and we’d love to hear what you think. If you’ve got one of the EPs, do tweet us a photo and if you can make it our last Roving Women show in London next month, do please come along, and tell your friends!
