James Yorkston, resident of the East Neuk of Fife, returns in the company of The Big Eyes Family Players with a new album of traditional songs from the length and breadth of the Great Britain & Ireland and one tune from Galicia in Spain. After a decade which has seen folk music morph into nu-folk, mobile phone-ad folk, mortgage-folk, smoothie-folk and so on, Yorkston has reached back into the tradition of song and place and drawn a line in the sand.

Limited to a 1000, the special edition of this release features the Folk Songs album on CD, a live CD containing music from the Folk Songs album plus performances of other traditional songs not included on the album, and finally a DVD containing a full length visual document of the live session. The special edition with be numbered & come with a fold out A3 poster.

If you pre-order through the Mart before the 6th July, your name will appear on the Special Edition artwork!
