Track : My Old man

"Now an album which has grown on me the more and more I listen to it is Bare Foot Folk from Ange Hardy. She lives down in the west country, writes all her own stuff, but they do sound as though they've come straight out of the soil of Devon and Somerset, I really like them.

...It'll be interesting to see when Ange does another album whether she carries on writing stuff which is very very rootsy and very very folky, I do like her stuff"

     - MIKE HARDING, The Mike Harding Folk Show


"I was especially excited to hear him anticipating the the next album"

Mike has continued to play tracks from 'Bare Foot Folk', much to my delight and has always been very kind with his words about the album.

I was especially excited to hear him anticipating the the next album 'The Lament of the Black Sheep' as I can confirm it will indeed follow the path of my "very very rootsy and very very folky" style of writing even deeper into the traditional style of writing which I have been exploring this last year. I can not wait to hear what he has to say about this one! 

Thank you Mike, for taking a chance on a new name and bringing my music into the warmth of your folk show to sit with you by the fire for a while and thaw through whilst I find my footing in the folk world. I owe you one ;) 

Also a huge thank you to everyone who took the time to request tracks on his show and helped to bring me to his attention in the first place. Please do continue listen to and support his shows.

Track : Young Martha's Well

"I've had a good listen to the album, there's some cracking tracks on it. She seems to get folk themes going in her mind, and writes new songs that sound sometimes for all the world as though they are in fact deeply traditional"
