Sleeve Notes

It is a rare occurrence indeed these days to find a group who concentrate on the lyrical content of their material. Drinkers Drouth do just that and have built up a wide variety of traditional material, presenting it in a manner quite unique in the 1984 folk scene.

On this, their second album, they wind their way through some of the best traditional and contemporary songs,. implementing various vocal groupings with devastating effect and displaying 5 part harmony singing of the highest calibre. With complementary instrumentation, the end result, as you will hear, is a triumph for good taste.

Their undoubted musical talent coupled with a great ability to generate a feeling of enjoyment and involvement on stage has deservedly established Drinkers Drouth to the forefront of international folk events. You'll probably be just as likely to see them in Denmark or Germany as in their native Edinburgh, but wherever they appear, along with many others, you'll be "Bound to Go".
