tracks: The Sloth and the Greed / Mother's Day / The Last God of England / Time / Tamlyn / A Babe of the World / Without Thinking Love / Rachel / Just Like John Barleycorn
Pete Morton was voted "most promising artist" by Folk Roots magazine's readers in 1987 and is distinguished from his contemporaries not only by his stage presence but also in the startling energy which he displays in the interpretation of both his own songs and the many traditional songs he has breathed new life into."Eleven of Pete's most popular songs digitally recorded with just voice and guitar, full tilt with all his usual power. It's a blinder quite simply the best debut record by a singer/songwriter out of the British folk club scene in recent memory. That's how to make records!"

"This year's (1988) best album by anyone in the acoustic field could well turn out to be "The Palm of Your Hand", Roger Wilson's debut..... ..Roger's strength is a creative musicianship, you can hear it in every arrangement......The record is a landmark within the territory of a new generation exploring song with acoustic foundations."

Janet Russell is the latest in an illustrious line of women singers from Scotland.

The result is a most enjoyable album of thought provoking lyric and musical excellence."

Although his roots are firmly in the tradition Brian has absorbed a variety of other influences, approaching his material with great vigour and inventiveness. "Fools of Fortune" sees Brian performing solo on several tracks, but on others he is supported by long-standing musical associates........his regular duo partner, fiddle player Jamie Knowles, his occasional country blues band The Mossley Dukes, jazz rock musician Mike Nacey on bass and Dave Shaw on Northumbrian pipes."An album of strong songs, surprises and good music from the big songs of the tradition to anglo concertina ragtime, via cajun accordion.!"
Fools of Fortune was awarded the Music Retailers Association Award for Excellence in 1990.

HARCD 006* GEORGE FAUX "Time For a Laugh and a Song"

George Faux will already be known for his work as a fiddle player in a series of 'quality' innovative bands, notably Shegui, Hom Bru and Red Shift. Now as a Solo performer George has built a fine reputation for himself as a wonderful musician and no mean singer and writer of both tunes and songs. This debut album, a mixture of tunes and songs, some traditional, some contemporary and some self-penned, all played with an obvious enjoyment of performance is delightful and atmospheric proof of George's abilities."An album that sees tradition treated with respect but manages not to be overwhelmed by it....the results that grace this release cannot fail to fill you with delight....A crisp clear production adds a steely concision to both songs and tunes."

HARCD 007* FIDDLIN' BOOTS BARFIELD AND THE BOAT BAND "Back up and Push"
tracks: Bechet Rhumba / The Onions / Bright Morning Stars / Gumbo Frog / Trouble in Mind / Cripple Creek - Old Joe Clark - Kitchen Girl / Pig Ankle Rag / Dink's Song / Back up and Push / Balma Mines / Single Girl / Magic Island Merengue.
The Boat Band are a good time band of indeterminate size and instrumentation, equally at home on the concert stage or adding music to all kinds of celebratory outdoor events. Their name comes partly from their annual seagoing tour of the Western Isles of Scotland playing wherever they make landfall, It's cajun, it's Bahamian, it's extremely danceable mayhem, gently leavened with some very atmospheric songs. Recorded live in a large shed at the canalside, and a good time was had by all.
CDcover
HARCD 008* JIM WOODLAND "Miracles"
tracks: Padlocks / Her Indoors / Berlin Wall / This is the Outside / Taking Her Away / The Academic / One and One / Bright Rooms / Happy Happy Happy / Miracles / You Can Dance / Flower and the Seed.
Jim Woodland is simply one of the best songwriters around! He has a history in rock music, cabaret, theatre and the contemporary folk circuit. "He has chosen to present himself in a solo setting for this album, just singing to his own guitar or piano accompaniment, and there's enough in Jim's words and tunes to engage the ear on their own, not a dud amongst the twelve presented here".
CDcover

"You'd be hard pressed to find a singer with a voice as powerful, versatile and expressive....Frankie has the remarkable ability to vividly convey the imagery of a song, capture and project it's every nuance, and perfectly exploit the natural tensions of lyric and melody, always giving her words space to breathe". "Ways of Seeing" is a powerful set of live concert recordings featuring Frankie singing on her own, in duets and with up to ten other women.

tracks: I Love You Well / Lakes of Champlain / La Belle Riviere / Sweet William's Ghost / Jenny's Gone to Ohio - Cider Mill / Oh Death / Dry Stone Walls / Lady of Carlisle / Mervin Barr / The Sky / Going Away / Sunrise / Nice Like That.

She is also a leading exponent of old time banjo tunes and styles. "Twenty years into her career as a recording artist and Sara Grey comes up with her best album!"

A second outing from the ever boisterous, never quite predictable Boat Band. Much more 'boat' material on this time including a tune utilising trombones (Muntilor) which they say they use as a foghorn on board the good ship Harbinger in bad visibility in the Irish Sea! This album uses more brass instruments than the first one and is again a live recording in "The Shed".

tracks: Mad World Blues / Songbird / Kurdistan / It Is What It Is / Down To Earth / John Barleycorn / People who Go Under / Patriotic Claptrap/ Malnutrition at Standing Rock / Keys To Love / Crazy Man / Katie.
Here is Pete Morton's third album. The first two "Frivolous Love" (HAR 001) and "One Big Joke" (HAR 004) were unequivocal successes on every level with universally glowing reviews and Pete being voted artist/songwriter most likely.....' all over the place. He's been in great demand throughout Europe and North America since these early triumphs. Now he's recorded this album with a band line-up of two acoustic guitars, fretless bass and drums, helped along by some ace back up in the vocal department by Sally Barker.
cd cover
HARCD 019 THE HOUSE BAND "Stonetown"

Ged Foley (vocals, guitar, Northumbrian pipes), Chris Parkinson (vocals, melodeon, keyboards, harmonica) and John Skelton (flute, whistle, bombarde, bodhran) are three musicians united in the belief that traditional music can be exiting, complex and above all relevant. Stonetown is their fourth album and bodes to be their most successful yet, with a move to a more live and immediate sound reflecting their powerful appearances on the international concert stage.
CDcover
HARCD 020* THE WILSON FAMILY "The Wilson Family Album"
tracks: John Barleycorn / The Mistress's Health / Beggars Carol / May Garlands / Thyme / The Jolly Ploughboys / Bay of Mexico / Sweep Chimney Sweep / Byker Hill / Young Banker / Hawks and Eagles / Children of Africa / Somewhere in Japan / Think Again / Big Steamers / Nelson's Death and Victory / Close the Coalhouse Door
The Wilson Family is an instantly recognisable and unfailingly popular feature of the English folk festival and club scene. Born and bred in Billingham with the heavy industries of Teesside all around and the Durham coalfield to the North, the five Wilson brothers have developed a uniquely muscular approach to the art of unaccompanied harmony singing. Like other family groups such as the Watersons and the Coppers - both of whom remain major influences - The Wilsons have an instinctive mutual understanding. They sing as they feel, and the sheer power of these five voices is awesome. At last The Wilson Family has set down a collection of their own favourites, and they have never sounded better. Here is a collection of songs drawn from an enormous repertoire and refined by years of performance delivered with a conviction driven by a love of song and the very joy of singing - the wait has surely been worthwhile!

HARCD 021 BRIAN PETERS "The Seeds of Time"

Brian Peters second album for Harbourtown Records. Over an hour of music, much of it drawn from the British tradition but also including items by contemporary writers, presented in a range of styles from unaccompanied to wild arrangements. Epic ballads rub shoulders with songs about today's issues and dynamic squeezebox tunes in a combination mixing simplicity with adventure, and eclecticism with strong local roots.
