KARINE POLWART & DAVE MILLIGAN - STILL AS YOUR SLEEPING
⭐️ NEW ALBUM - SIGNED CD, LP, DIGITAL, ARTWORK PRINTS ⭐️
We hope you are all having a brilliant summer.
We have even more exciting news for you this week, another new Hudson release! Autumn 2021 will see a brand new album from our wonderful friend Karine Polwart. Karine has joined up with the amazing pianist and fellow villager Dave Milligan to create their beautiful new album 'Still As Your Sleeping'.
Piano and voice isn’t a combination that you hear much in the folk idiom and yet it can be just as potent – if not more so – than a full band, ‘Still As Your Sleeping’ is just this, a duo album of piano and voice. Deceptively simple, yet devastatingly powerful. The new record is due to be released this October and is available to pre-order TODAY!
Signed CD, Artwork Prints, Digital (Released 1/10/21)
LP (Released 10/12/21)
We have some fantastic limited edition prints of the cover artwork as well, produced by Jenni Douglas.
An incredibly personal album, it was recorded less than ten minutes from Karine’s home. “It’s never felt more important to me to make music, and tell stories, from exactly where I am, with the people I live alongside, my friends and neighbours”. Of the 10 tracks that make up ‘Still As Your Sleeping’ some are old, some are new, but threaded through them all are images of stillness and flux, leaving and returning, and pivots of change. They range from original songs by Karine, such as ‘Travel These Ways,’ written for Luminate, Scotland’s festival of creative ageing, and ‘Old Men of the Shells’ by fellow Scot, Alasdair Roberts. There are also traditional songs including ‘Craigie Hill’ and the timeless and poignant ‘The Parting Glass’. Interestingly, this latter song was requested by Margaret Atwood for her specially curated BBC Radio 4 Today programme in December 2020, and also featured in a July 2021 edition of BBC Radio 4’s Soul Music. Karine sums the collection up by saying that many of the songs walk the edge of things. “People say goodbye to what they know, to loved ones, and perhaps even to life, whilst others are pulled back to the world of the living. There’s a deep sense of time too, both of those who went before us, and those who’re still to come”.
But since it falls unto my lot
that I should rise and you should not (The Parting Glass)
