Listen to Samples from the Album


– Maggie Moore, Mardles: The Folk Magazine for East Anglia

“I discovered the Sedbuskers in a showcase evening at Royston Folk Club May 2017. I was instantly transported by their skilled arrangements and witty lyrics. Ian performs with an energetic vitality, complimented by Sue’s beautiful transcendent vocals and haunting recorder. Each track is unique from their album “The Lady in the Lake” making it difficult to pick a favourite. I did particularly love “The Clown” and “Elizabeth Wilde”. There is an array of musicians to which Sedbuskers remind me of, including Pentangle and Jethro Tull, but ultimately they have their own individual style mixing folk and rock characteristics.”

– Hannah Thomas, cellist of Solasta

“Authentic song writing with distinctive resonant and sweet vocals that grip you with their stories. The album cover has gorgeous textures, night colours and a great CD format. My stand out track is Elizabeth Wilde.”

– Daniel Crow, Re-Fuel in York
