    Holy Heathens and the Old Green Man

    Holy Heathens and the Old Green Man is everything you're probably hearing about it and more. All Souls have been hallowed for another year, and if Christmas preparations have to start immediately then where better to start than with this throbbing jangle of a record, as ancient and as English as the old Green Man himself and as youthful as The Devil's Interval, recent graduates of the UNT degree in Traditional Music and collaborators with the Waterson/Carthy family on this exquisite collection of songs sacred and scary, profane and profound, and deliriously alive with the clods and clogs of Albion. Breathtaking.
