Trails & Tribu­la­tions

TOPIC. CD/DL/LP

“A col­lec­tion of songs about na­ture, trav­els and real life sto­ries,” says Simp­son of this con­sum­mate ex­hi­bi­tion of skill and de­sire. With deliri­ously fine banjo on Emily Port­man’s Bones & Feath­ers, an in­spired ex­huma­tion of Jack­son Frank’s Blues Run The Game, a stir­ring re-telling of the John Hardy leg­end, a lament­ing St James Hos­pi­tal, a cou­ple of crack­ing orig­i­nals of his own and a beau­ti­ful pro­duc­tion. You have to doff your cap.
