Night Hours - Jimmy Aldridge and Sid Goldsmith
Our next LCM featured artists are the highly acclaimed duo of Jimmy Aldridge and Sid Goldsmith who play traditional and original music of the British Isles. They have recently released their new second album called 'Night Hours' and our LCM #TrackOfTheDay is the very good title song.
Jimmy and Sid are next playing in London on 28th April, where they are headlining at The Foundling Museum.
Over the last three years they have built a reputation on the UK folk scene for arresting and moving performances. The songs themselves are always given centre stage but they are brought to life with sensitive musical arrangements and stunning vocals. There is an integrity that shines through their performances and a common thread of political struggle, resistance, and justice.
They have been heavily influenced by the songs and singers of East Anglia, where they both grew up, but their music also reflects the diversity of voices within the folk world. Their debut album on Fellside Records was described as 'utterly absorbing’ with ‘excellent musicianship and sympathetic instrumentation twinned with fine harmony singing.'
Their second album 'Night Hours' was released in December 2016 to great reviews across the board and has fast cemented their place of longevity within the folk scene.
