“It’s a long time since I heard somebody with such a great sense of rhythm and such sensitivity”– Mike Harding
Entitled ‘English Fiddle’, it’s a collection of trad English fiddle tunes accompanied by Rowan Piggott’s (The Wilderness Yet) Cittern.
Will Allen is an expert button accordionist, melodeon player and fiddler based in the southeast of England. He has an enormous repertoire of dance tunes from England, Ireland, Scotland and many other western countries.
Will also composes his own music and teaches people of all abilities to play and understand traditional music and dance.
“Growing up myself in Kent I know that playing folk music is mostly a sole learning experience, I was at Broadstairs Folk Festival some years back on campsite and heard a sound you’d never hear unless a visiting band were perhaps having a session, it was box playing of a superb standard and from such a young man too! Will embodies all that is great about our folk traditions and on fiddle too!” – Tim Edey
