WINNER OF BEST DEBUT IN THE SPIRAL EARTH AWARDS 2012

English folk at its absolute best.” ***** Oz Hardwick, R2 magazine

“elegant, unflinchingly pure folk instrumentals. Griffith’s stirring folk voice is absolutely lovely” The Telegraph

“new talent of quality as high as this should be celebrated long and unreservedly” Colin Cater, Mardles Magazine

 

“…a wonderful, uncompromising style, and a rare connection to the tradition…” Mike Harding, BBC Radio 2

“Will Hampson’s melodeon playing is excellent…with a style which seems to be much his own. Bryony’s fiddle playing is very pleasing – bags of tone, and invention…she has a great voice for folksongs, and is not afraid to show a bit of passion”. Rod Stradling, Musical Traditions

“An excellent CD” Paul Adams, Fellside

Legendary-to-be” English Dance and Song Magazine

“The best female singers, in whatever genre, stamp their own authority on their songs and Bryony Griffith does just that while Will has some very individual rhythmic tricks on melodeon that make their sound so distinctive.” Dai Jefferies, folking.com

“…a beautiful, reverberant sound scape…” Nick Howard, Shreds and Patches

“an album which revels in its acoustic beauty….Do I like it? Yes, I like it very much indeed” Alan Rose, Tykes News

“Lady Diamond is as hard and beautiful a release as the name might suggest, simply cut and absolutely sharp.” Fatea Magazine

“An office favourite within 24 hours which isn’t easily done. It is splendid.”
Alan Bearman, Alan Bearman Music

“LADY DIAMOND takes its place as one of the duo’s rites of passage, their status changing from important musicians in their many collaborative endeavours to a perfectly formed entity in their own right.” Allan Wilkinson, Northern Sky
