Album Notes
Over the last 12 years Vicki Swan & Jonny Dyer have developed an enviable reputation for fine musicianship, creative integrity and a style that is simultaneously wonderfully varied and distinctly their own.

Paper of Pins; their 7th album, has all the Swan-Dyer elements; with refreshing arrangements of folk classics alongside self-penned offerings that mix traditional and contemporary folk with baroque, MusicHall and even classical sounds.

You can feel influences from England, Scotland and Sweden running through the very core of their creations and you can hear their arrangements drawing on the disciplines of early and contemporary music form.

The variety in the 13 tracks (over an hour) is best realised by just looking at their instrumentation.

Alongside their standard folk-appearance menagerie of vocals, nyckepharpa, guitars, accordions, pipes and flute you will also see appearances from an octave nyckelharpa (“‘cello in a church”), a cow horn, spinet, harpsichord, church organ, piano and double bass.

Not only do this talented duo play all the instruments on Paper of Pins, they play them exceptionally well to create an album that has simple engaging melodies and deep complex harmonies.
