422 won the 1999 BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award. This is their fourth studio album, eleven years later. In the meantime individually and collectively they have collected degrees and a raft of other band experiences including the Kathryn Tickell Band, Baltic Crossing, The Hut People, Alistair Anderson’s Steel Skies various ceilidh bands and numerous one-off collaborations. Add to this teaching, tutoring and producing albums for other people. Having concentrated on playing ceilidhs they are back playing concerts. This wealth of experience has been brought to bear on the new album. The mix is as eclectic as before taking its sources from Britain, Europe and beyond. The musicality and skill which underpins their playing is again in evidence; their challenging arrangements bring the music to life. Everything is played with flawless enthusiasm.

"This is the sound of musicians who enjoy what they do and it’s easy to get caught up in it." Dirty Linen (USA)
