ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Bryony Griffith is an English fiddle player and singer from Huddersfield in West Yorkshire with a rich repertoire of English dance tunes and songs.

Bryony is among the few fiddle players whose repertoire draws almost exclusively on traditional English tunes, with a particular passion for the more uncommon dance tunes of her native Yorkshire and surrounding counties.

With a background in playing for dancing, it is no surprise that several of the tracks have been played for dance teams such as Dog Rose Morris and The Newcastle Kingsmen Sword Dancers, but others have been sourced from friends, sessions, digitised manuscripts and Bryony’s extensive collection of tune books.

Bryony’s vibrant, punctuated and commanding interpretations lift the tunes for dancers and exemplify a distinctive English fiddle style, but Hover also showcases a more gentle, elegant feel, complimented by her skillful and sensitive arrangements. The bold, solo tracks allow the tunes to speak for themselves, while the addition of Ian Stephenson’s guitar and double bass brings variety and depth to the album.
