Reg Meuross, Fatea Best Male Vocalist 2013, FolkWords Best Album 2014 www.regmeuross.com
If you haven’t already experienced the warmth, humour and depth of Reg’s performances then you are in for a treat. “Reg doesn’t write lines of lyrics. He writes short stories then sets them to some of the most captivating melodies you’ll ever hear…” (PennyBlack Music).
Reg is an extraordinary singer songwriter at the top of his game, accompanying himself on guitar and, as The Times says, bringing ‘Intelligent and thought-provoking songs, beautifully made and skilfully delivered’.
“’Two Wolves’ is more than two fine English folk dynasties meeting. This is proper song brainfood.” *****fROOTS
“A more ambiguous trajectory than before, bringing ‘Two Wolves’ into line with the psych-folk lineage of the late 1960s. Most attractive.”
****INDEPENDENT on SUNDAY
“Perfectly balances traditional & contemporary [folk]…echoes of Nick Drake, Vashti Bunyan and Sandy Denny while Woolgathering Girl is more reminiscent of latter-day Kate Bush.” ****METRO
Inheriting the legacy of one of British folk's most revered families, it took a long time for Marry to step centre stage. Although she had made her recording debut on her mother Lal and aunt Norma Waterson’s A True Hearted Girl back in 1977 and later under the name The Waterdaughters formed an occasional singing partnership with them and cousin Eliza Carthy, appearing on numerous Watersons and Waterson/ Carthy recordings to boot - it wasn’t until two crucial shows in 2007 that the idea of making music herself really took hold.
That year Marry and brother Oliver Knight appeared with the Waterson family at a special Royal Albert Hall concert entitled A Mighty River of Song, and again later the same year at the BBC Electric Proms concert Once in a Blue Moon: A Tribute to Lal Waterson in which they both played key roles as performers and curators.
So encouraged, in 2011 came the pair’s hugely acclaimed debut The Days That Shaped Me (“the potential to be a lifelong companion. It’s that good.” 5/5 Independent On Sunday). Nominated for a BBC Folk Award, the record - born out circumstance rather than design, and part homage to mother Lal – was full of beautiful, evocative, mysterious songs that included collaborations with Kathryn Williams, James Yorkston and Eliza.
