A DISTANT BELL
'A Distant Bell' is Caroline Lavelle's self-produced, thirteen song Chamber Folk reinterpretation of English and Irish traditions. The same deep well of folk material that inspired Sandy Denny and Fairport Convention is transformed by the lens of Lavelle's pastoral romanticism as we travel with her from Medieval Sussex to 1960s Liverpool via the social upheavals of the Industrial Revolution, the battle fields of the Napoleonic Wars and of 1915 Armenia.LISTEN & BUY
