ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
London Reborn is an album of new interpretations of old London folk songs. The recordings seamlessly combine traditional instruments with modern electronica in arrangements that are often strikingly original.
Most of the instruments are played by Simon McKechnie, but the album also features great guests, all of whom are based in South London.

'There's a vast 'time-scape' feel to this album. Its span and dimension holds you entranced. It has sweeping vistas and changing places. It is street theatre. It is folk art for your ears. It is London.' - Folkwords

'The story-songs have a freshness and humour about them which is very London' - The Telegraph
