The featured album was KATIE KIRK & RICK WILLIAMS by KATIE KIRK & RICK WILLIAMS www.katiekirkandrickwilliams.co.uk The duo, who live on opposite sides of Mounts Bay, near Penzance, have developed their ballad repertoire over the past six years. They have a well-deserved high profile on the Cornish folk scene and this is their first release. Strong Cornish links are evident in several poems by Charles Causley set to music by Williams. There are also settings of poems by C. Fox Smith and some traditional ballads. Kirk’s excellent unembellished vocals let the words carry the songs forward, while Williams’ sensitive and stylish guitar provides the right support. This is a delightful album.
