The Next Turn - a fantastic album ….crank it up Trouble In the Kitchen!!!

Just got the newest album from Trouble in the Kitchen and like their other albums it is bloody fantastic!!!
The selection of tunes range from driving reels to beautiful waltzs and marches. Kate’s Sarah Island really shows just how fantastic a singer she is, beautiful! Ado’s songs bring back to home the what ITM and folk music should be about, working class, social comments that mean something, bloody top stuff!
Also the tunes written by the band members I believe show not only that they understand the tradition but you would be lead to believe that the tunes have been around for decades!
All in all a fantastic album that will be pride of place in my collection for years to come, keep it up Trouble!!!!

Hope youre getting paid for that Tom!
Haven’t had a chance to listen yet but I am sure you are probably right anyway.

Hey Tom
Our band needs a new publicist too. Want a job?

Well done to the Troubles though. A slick outfit. They’re planning a trip to the northern climes mid-year. Try and catch them while they are there.

Does sound like a festival write up doesnt it 🙂 he he! But it is all 100% true!

Well done, SirNose. After hearing you at “The Nash”, me and the wife bought 4 copies of your CD. 2 are with family in Australia, 1 is bound for Denmark, and I’ll try to get you some coverage on Radio Scotland’s “Travelling Folk” with the other.
Keep up the good work, and we hope to come to Melbourne on the next trip. A well-deserved award.

Particularly liked Ado’s singing of “Mill Towns”.

Last track……….

There’s a lot of confusion about with regard to the titles of 2 Northern reels, “Jig Away The Donkey” and “The Piper On Horseback”, including on this recording. 2nd reel on the last track is not the “Piper..” but [ “Mick Hoy’s ] Jig Away The Donkey” - posted here :

1st tune on track 6 is “Jigging The Donkey”, although the link works to a version of the tune in a flat key. A link to the the more common “Adorian” version is provided in the comments.
