Make way there Stand aside Clear a pathway Woe betide you stayers Here's the Green Man Ivy clad Now the Wodewose Staring mad and scaring Come all good people You come from every field Lay down your sickles Bring forth your harvest yield Barley, corn a-plenty To feed the miller's wheel Dance now on lammas Bring the harvest home Come you keepers of the fields Come you watchers of the skies Dance on lammas day From the Wrekin to the Brecks From the Lizard to the Lochs Dance on lammas day (c) Peter Ulrich 2020

about

We bring our dark folk series full circle on Lammas (1st August), 13 years after the release of 'John Barleycorn Reborn: Dark Britannica'. A constant theme throughout these releases has been the cyclical nature of time and the seasons, and the relationship of mankind to the natural environment, with recurrent references to John Barleycorn, personification of the harvest.

"In my beginning is my end…

Old fires to ashes, and ashes to the earth
Which is already flesh, fur and faeces,
Bone of man and beast, cornstalk and leaf…

In my end is my beginning" (TS Eliot, East Coker)

32 tracks from the cream of current dark British Folk music. Of special note, PETER ULRICH (DEAD CAN DANCE) created an exclusive track especially for this collection: 'Lammas Dance'.

Digital release: 1st August
2CD release: Friday 11th September

Reviews:

"...an accomplished project with much to recommend it...a rich array of interpretations of dark folk... a strong line-up of tracks, balancing reverence for old forms and styles against a modern interest in musicianship and storytelling. It’s a worthwhile release with which to round off the Dark Britannica project, and as such it’s well worth the wait" (Trebuchet Magazine)
