The album showcases their blend of serious musicianship and dedicated subversion. Their intricately arranged instrumentals are a roomful of strangers introducing themselves at a party and getting along fine. You don’t know what’s coming up next and you enjoy the danger… lords of misrule.

They can do things with a squeeze-box and an oboe that can break your heart.

Amidst the jesting and hilarity, they sit as fine an example of traditional English folk music as you’re likely to hear.

Harmonious live hilarity and serious musicianship, communicated with enthusiasm and wicked intelligence.

Long may Messrs Sartin and Hutchinson continue to find a few weeks each year to get together to entertain and, in a understated way, educate us all.

One of the most intimate and entertaining live albums I’ve heard.
