ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Modern Folk is an album that mixes Balkan Gypsy Music with Hillbilly Rock, Pre War Blues, Music Hall, English Folk, zydeco stomp and acoustic Punk. A Sort of Alt. Caucasian primordial soup of soup of styles that bear the unmistakable signature of JC Carroll.

In the Last 20 years since the break up of \"The Members\" JC has spent time Learning accordian, mandolin and banjo, playing Klezmer, Highlife, and Folk at Weddings, Festivals, Pubs, Parties and funerals all over the UK. He has played accordian on major motion pictures for the likes of The Late Michael Kamen, Marlon Brando Johnny Depp Jolie Richardson and more recently Robert Di Nero. He has been the musical director of several Music Hall type productions and composed music for Film and TV.

This album sees the fruit of all that back to the roots research. From the dinging triangle introduction from arch collaborator percussionist Nick Cash on \"House on the Risin\' Sun\" to the lonely organ on the final track \"Give me paradise\" There is a vibrant no-punches pulled approach to Modern Folk. Crammed with Songs about murderers, brothels, suicidal lovers, Lovesick Bluesmen, night people, Music Hall Dames and old haunted houses this is definately a celebration of the darker sides of Folk. What JC voices lacks in finesse is more then made up with the gusto in which he attacks his subject.
