Our Song of the Day comes from singer, musician and songwriter Sharron Kraus. Blodeuwedd features on her forthcoming new album and Clay Pipe Music debut Friends and Enemies; Lovers and Strangers which is expected to be released in Spring this year.
The songs on the new album were inspired by Welsh folk tales of The Mabinogi, the earliest prose literature of Britain. The idea for the album was first realised while she was living in rural Mid Wales.
“I started off writing the songs as a way of getting to grips with what was happening in the stories” She says, “Trying to understand things that at first seemed confusing to me, and quickly got sucked in to a strange and wonderful world. I fell in love with these stories whilst being mystified by them and the process of wrestling them into song form has been one of the most challenging and rewarding of my song writing projects to date.”
Joining Sharron on the album are Harriet Earis: harp; Nancy Wallace: vocals, Nick Palmer: piano
The album is released as a 12″ LP, 500 numbered copies, reverse board matt cover, with fully illustration booklet, and download code.
