Road Not Taken

About

Road Not Taken

Road Not Taken are a Bristol based four piece starting to make waves on the UK folk scene.

Having honed their craft over a number of years of performing live, their debut album Fragment brings together eight songs, inspired by the tradition and which best represent their sound.

Fragment is a collection of five inventive and atmospheric arrangements of traditional folk songs and tunes, two originals and a creative arrangement of a popular classic. Singer Anita Dobson's clear and striking vocal soars over hypnotically beautiful melodies from Claire Hamlen on violin and viola, underpinned by Ant Miles' understated finger style guitar and Joe Hamlen's creative use of harmonium, banjo and bass guitar.

On the album title, Ant says "A fragment is a piece that can stand alone, but also form part of a greater whole, a bigger picture, which we feel reflects our approach to arranging songs from the traditional folk canon; our interpretations are just one aspect of the many variations which exist of these familiar songs."
