Starting with a new project from long-time GTSF favourite and BBC Folk Award winner Greg Russell, with Danny Pedler: Field & Dyke. a project combining traditional music with the sounds of industry.
Then there's The Wilderness Yet: this new trio combines the acclaimed talents of folksinger Rosie Hodgson, traditional fiddler Rowan Piggott, and guitarist-flautist Philippe Barnes.
