Ghosts, the 2004 CD Chris Wood, John Dipper and I recorded as the English Acoustic Collective is now available as a CD or download – use the Bandcamp player below or click here. Considered by many to be a landmark release, this CD features my tunes Copernicus and St George’s Day as well as the Hugh Lupton / Chris Wood songs Bleary Winter and Mari Lwyd, John Dipper’s fantastic Kennington Jig, and our treatment of several traditional tunes including The Hare’s Maggot and Mr Isaac’s Maggot and the morris tunes Bonnets of Blue and the Cuckoo’s Nest.
