Alston/Kirk Overdrive - Broadside Ballads Reconfigured CD

Precio de venta£12.00


The ballads reflect the sentiments, values, and concerns of the people during different periods in history, making them a valuable source for understanding the past. The musical and poetic qualities of broadside ballads continue to captivate those who encounter them. This early public flyer art documented personal stories ranging from the last words of executed men, to the ecstatic paens of lovers and the dreams of adventurers.


        These vital historical texts captured the imagination of Andy Alston (Del Amitri) and James Kirk (Orange Juice), the production team known as Alston/Kirk Overdrive - joined by American-Scottish producer/singer-songwriter Marilyn Carino (Mudville, DJ Scratch n Sniff), who spent a year developing these historical gems into songs, performed by themselves and a diverse mix of singers and musicians. The vocalists chosen range from USA to Perth Australia via Skye, Lewis and Glasgow.


        This eclectic collection of catchy and surprisingly moving songs reveals that the emotions and life events that inspire people to create poetry and song remain unchanged over the centuries, and relevant to all genres and musical styles.


        Broadside Ballads Reconfigured will be performed at Celtic Connections 2024, with a tour to follow.
