Brian Harnetty
Rawhead & Bloodybones

Brian Harnetty has made an interesting suite of music here, sliding between his own, newly produced music and 1940’s era recordings of folk music and folk tales told by children.

As a child I imagined that by my mid 30's I'd be an estate agent or something, swaggering into a country pub on a friday evening, soft top down, lady on each arm.
